Fudge and Flowers for HOPE

Friday 12 May saw our first "Plant and Fudge" sale in aid of our Year 7 charity, the HOPE International Development Agency and our partner school, in Ikoba.  The forecast was a bit unsettled but that didn't stop the amazing members of Eco Club setting up their stall and doing their bit to help others in the sunshine and the rain!

Mrs Julie Coles joined us as a representative of the charity and the caretakers helped with tables etc.  The canteen staff had provided the containers and Year 7 then covered them in attractive designs.  10Q had helped with the planting up of the petunias, carnations, peas and beans and then all we needed were some customers!  Never fear...the fudge sold in ten minutes flat with lots of interest from all years.  We had to restrict some of the requests just to make sure there was enough for everyone but it all went... hearts large and small, squares, chunks and finally the crumbs!


Then the plants started going with students telling us all about their gardens at home and some buying presents for their family.  Then teachers and staff arrived snapping up a bargain or three!  The ladies from the canteen were our best customers and we have some requests for repeat orders.  It really was an event which brought all aspects of the school together. 


Huge thanks to the fabulous kids in Eco Club and to all our supportive customers.  We raised over £120.00 in one lunch hour!
