‘Ash House’ pupils come together to raise funds for cancer support
PUPILS clubbed together to help raise thousands for a cancer charity.
Students from Tytherington School’s ‘Ash House’ got involved in a range of activities to help drum up funds for McMillan Cancer Support.
And altogether the hard-working students managed to raise a total of £2,200 for the charity, which helps patients who live with cancer, carers, families and communities. It also funds nurses and other specialist health care professionals and building cancer care centres.
Money was raised through different initiatives, including a coffee and cake morning, a non-uniform day organised by Ash House students and run by the house’s captains.
Some money was also raised through a staff coffee morning.
After all the donations were put together, the school held a special ceremony during which Louisa Walmsley, the fundraising manager for McMillan in Cheshire East, came in the collect the cheque on behalf of the charity from Ash house’s captains (pictured).
Cath Linaker is one of the school’s PE teachers and head of Ash House. Cath, who has worked at Tytherington School for more than 10 years, said: “It was amazing to see the response from all of the students, we had tables full of cakes to sell.
“It shows how everyone can pull together to raise money for such a good cause.”
