Boys Don Wacky Shirts for Charity
Friday, 10 December 2010
Sixth form boys donned their wackiest and craziest shirts in order to raise money for Boot Out Breast Cancer.
Year 13 pupil Ollie Dowie organised the event in order to raise funds for the charity, which was recently founded by his mum Debbie Dowie after she beat breast cancer herself. Sixth Form pupils and staff donated £2.00 each in exchange for wearing their most colourful and outrageous shirt to school for the day. Boot Out Breast Cancer specialises in raising money to buy the latest, most technologically advanced equipment that is required for an early diagnosis. Such equipment would be used across the North West in NHS hospitals starting with the Nightingale Centre in Manchester.
Ollie said: "The atmosphere in the common room has been amazing today, we are having fun and raising money - it's great to be able to get not just pupils but teachers involved too."
