We would like to say a huge thank you to ‘Dover Grammar School for Boys’ for raising £1,700 for Catching Lives in their recent Charity week.
Catching Lives general manager Terry Gore (pictured) said- ‘Many thanks to all those involved in raising this amazing amount of money which will greatly help Catching Lives to continue to support rough sleepers and vulnerably housed individuals in Canterbury and the surrounding areas’.
Also in the photo is Fiona Chapman (Headteacher), Elizabeth Boxall (Head of Sixth Form), Julie McCarthy (sixth form student association coordinator), Alex Morrison (Year 13 student) and Laura Coe (Deputy Head of SFSA).
Below is an article that student Alex Morrison wrote about the events held-
‘ On the last week of the winter term the Sixth Form Student Association (SFSA) decided to help out this important charity. Over the week the whole school got together and raised over £1700 for Catching Lives, this was accomplished via a number of events and fund-raising activities.
With the promise of cake and the potential for a bald history teacher, students from all years dug deep into their pockets and spent all their spare change on the wide variety of events laid on by the sixth form. Everything from a bake sale to a penalty shoot out was put on with an own clothes day to finish the week off. The week was hugely successful and enjoyable with the outcome being a huge amount of money for a great cause. We would like to thank the SFSA for organising the week and to Terry Gore from Catching lives for his help. Also a huge thanks to all the local businesses that supported the week and to the students at DGSB for their generosity.’
