Girls' Xmas Post Helps Air Ambulance
Friday, 01 February 2013
Year 10 pupils at Bolton School Girls’ Division presented a cheque for over £1,200 to the North West Air Ambulance charity, raised through the annual Christmas Post Charity Event.
The money was raised over four days at the end of last term, starting with a special assembly where each form group performed a ten minute themed assembly to generate interest in the fundraising efforts they intended to carry out over the following days. Girls chose topical themes such as 'I'm a Celebrity' and 'X Factor' for their presentations, to encourage other students to support them in their fundraising which includes selling cakes and sweets. Joanne Fowler from the NWAA came into school to receive the cheque from the girls.
Lynda Brislin, Chief Executive of the North West Air Ambulance, said "We're so grateful to Bolton School for choosing us for this donation, it's great to see young people getting in to the spirit to help charity. It's a fantastic contribution and will help us to raise the vital funds needed to keep our two helicopters flying."
