Students and staff alike got stuck in to a variety of wonderful and occasionally weird activities during this year’s Charities Week, which took place at the end of the Spring Term and raised £4500 for good causes.
The week, organised by the Grange’s Charity Committee, included a ‘Grand Bazaar’ which included old classics such as ‘Sponge the Teacher’ and a chocolate fountain. Tuesday lunchtime saw ‘All Star Mr and Mrs’ which proved to be a chance for pupils to find out some previously unknown secrets about their teachers! There was also a student edition of the popular TV show Take Me Out and, of course, the Talent Show which once again saw a high standard of musical and comic acts light up the theatre stage. The whole week was brought to a close with the customary fancy dress day on the last day of term which saw some spectacular costumes!
“The Charities Committee worked incredibly hard to put all the activities together, so it was great to see it all come together so well. Every penny will go to our chosen charities: The Alzheimer’s Society, Macmillan Cancer Support, CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young), and Project Gambia,” said Charities Coordinator, Mr Lambert.
