Block 5s raise £3,000 for four charities

Last January Block 4 undertook to raise £3,000 to be divided between four local charities. It took them a year to do it – and they are now Block 5 – but, after running a talent show, selling advertising space in a brochure about the project, washing cars, selling ice cream and finally Alex Yetman’s fashion show, the money was raised. In the closing weeks of last term representatives of the four charities, Canine Partners, Enable Ability, The Elizabeth Foundation and The Sussex Snowdrop Trust attended Block 5 assemblies to receive their cheques for £750 each. The charities were all hugely impressed that one year group had achieved so much for them and their representatives spoke movingly about how this effort would make a real difference to local people facing challenging circumstances.
