On Sunday 8 September, the Boys’ Division Samba Band performed at Bolton Hospice’s Bubble Rush fundraising event at Queen’s Park. Eight pupils in Years 8-12, assisted by Mr Forgrieve and Mr Bleasdale, enjoyed giving an encouraging energy boost to those participating in the 5K run, helping to keep tired legs moving amidst a carnival atmosphere. They entertained an appreciative audience for two hours. Participants of all ages were sprayed with coloured foam at four bubble stations by Bubble Commandos. There was a celebratory atmosphere throughout the event. Hundreds of smiling faces of all ages emerged from the bubbles and it was wonderful to see such enjoyment, constantly punctuated with laughter. Substantial funds will have been raised for this very worthy charity. This has become a regular annual event for the Samba Band. Well done to our pupils!​
