Year 10 pupils raise £320 for Coventry charity

Many thanks to Janet McConkey of the Coventry Children’s Boot Fund, who came into the Academy today (8th February 2017) to receive a cheque for £320 from our Year 10 pupils.

Janet (pictured here with Bill of 10MPU) said she was ‘thrilled’ that the Year 10 group had made such efforts in their endeavours before Christmas to raise money for the fund. 

The students held a raffle, tombola, washed cars and sold cakes to raise funds for an extremely worthwhile cause. Ms McConkey told the pupils that the Boot Fund had been in existence for 125 years, and that the average support for a family is £35 towards school shoes, so the Year 10s will have provided at least 9 children with essential footwear and relieved the financial pressure for those families.
