Australian Bush Fires Appeal Day
Fitzalan pupils and staff were concerned to see the news reports of the devastation caused by the terrible bushfires in Australia and wanted to do something to help. On Friday 24th January the Charity Committee organised an ‘Australian Bushfires Appeal Day’ and this included a collection of donations from staff and pupils and a cake sale.
We had a huge amount of cakes donated and the cake sale was very busy. In total we raised a fantastic £200! The Charity Committee felt that they wanted to respond to the humans caught up in the crisis and also the wildlife. Consequently £100 was sent to the Australian Red Cross and the other £100 has been donated to the WWF. Thank you to everyone who donated cakes and money and also to those who helped on the day.
