Albany staff and students took part in the BBC annual fundraiser for its Children in Need charity on Friday 13th November. All staff and students donated money as part of a non-uniform day which raised £650.
As well as the non-uniform day Year 10 catering students baked special Children in Need cakes to sell on the day, this helped to raise a further £80. Albany raised over £800 in total which will go to help local and nationally funded projects to improve the lives of some of the UK’s most disadvantaged young people.
Mr Crowther, who organised the fundraising for Children in Need said, "Yet again the pupils and staff of Albany have raised a fantastic amount of money for Children in Need. This is a charity that supports over 2,000 projects in the UK that work with children that desperately need help, some not far away from Albany. Every penny we raised will be going to support these projects. A special thank you to Mrs Roberts and Mrs Parry and the students who made the mountain of Pudsey cakes that were all sold in record time."
