We are excited to announce that we will be hosting the ‘BIG FAT QUIZ OF THE SCHOOL YEAR’ on Friday 14 July 2023 from 6:00pm!
This event will bring us together as a community, to raise funds for the following charities selected by Brocket, Elk and Fallow:
“1 in 4 people have mental health problems, most of us don’t get the help we need. Mind are fighting against mental health, they are fighting; for support, for respect, for everyone. Mind change minds across England and Wales by making mental health an everyday priority. By standing up to the injustices – in healthcare, in work, in law – which make life harder for those of us with mental health problems.
Mind support minds – offering help whenever people might need it by providing information, advice and local services. Mind connect minds. Bringing together an unstoppable network of individuals and communities – people who care about mental health to make a difference.” (Mind website)
Elk: LIMB POWER
“Limb Power was launched in November 2009 to engage amputees and individuals with limb impairments in physical activity, sport and the arts to improve quality of life and to aid lifelong rehabilitation.
In July 2014 Limb Power became a National Disability Sports Organisation, sitting alongside WheelPower, Cerebral Palsy Sport (CP Sport), Dwarf Sport, British Blind Sport (BBS), UK Deaf Sport, Mencap Sport and Special Olympics Great Britain (SOGB). Through this association and our work with the English Federation of Disability Sport and Sport England Limb Power help amputees and people with limb impairment reach their sporting potential.
Limb Power also run arts-based activities including confidence workshops and a photography club.” (LIMB POWER website)
Fallow: CTA CATCH
CATCH (CTA Community Hub) has been designed with the following aims:
- To enable all staff to access uniform, PE kit and equipment to distribute to pupils in need;
- To provide food parcels for pupils/families who need an extra helping hand;
- To provide opportunities for pupils to access appropriate attire to enable them to attend Y11 and Sixth Form end of year prom events.
We have been raising money for these charities throughout the academic year. The BIG FAT QUIZ OF THE SCHOOL YEAR will be the final chance to raise money and all members of the school community are welcome, including; pupils, staff, family, friends, etc.
You can purchase a table for up to six team members for £10; money will be taken on the door; however, tables can be reserved prior by emailing email@example.com, avoiding disappointment on the night!
Please ensure you have a mobile device in which you can play the quiz on and extra change to participate in some of our other fundraising games. People are welcome to bring their own snacks and soft drinks (alcohol is not allowed).
We look forward to seeing lots of you there!
