Competition to Sell Sweet Treats Aids LivLife

Monday, 07 April 2014

The Year 7 girls have been competing to see whose sweet treat stall was the best at tempting Girls' Division pupils!

Each form was given a particular day to set up a stall. They then had to entice as many pupils as possible through their form room door during break and lunch time. There were many mouth-watering choices on offer: a wide variety of sweets from marshmallows to tubes of sherbet, both home-made and shop-bought fairy cakes and slices of sponge cake, cans of soft drinks, crisps, chocolate, and even popcorn! The older pupils flocked into the Year 7 form rooms, packing them to bursting point to buy what was on offer.

The friendly competition was organised to aid LivLife, a charity which helps to provide free and relevant education and vocational opportunities to poor communities in Tanzania. All of the money raised through the individual sales will be donated - and from the number of girls who took advantage of the stalls, it should be a significant amount.

The girls and now anxiously waiting to hear the total amount raised for the charity, and are of course itching to find out which form won the competition!
