300 Pennies Challenge update

The Fourth years have answered the 300 Pennies Challenge with great enthusiasm...
8 Dec 2021

In response to the '300 Pennies Challenge' launched in September to inspire pupils to raise funds for the Richard Churcher Foundation during the School's tercentenary, students in 4G organised a seasonally themed Christmas snacks and drinks sale. They sold cakes, Christmas treats, tea and hot mulled apple juice to pupils throughout the senior school during their morning break.

4G were inspired to collaborate and pool together their 300 pennies in order to bulk buy the produce needed for their morning cake sale.  They were delighted to raise over £200 for the '300 Pennies Challenge'. All money raised through the challenge will go towards the Richard Churcher Foundation which provides bursary awards to families whose children would otherwise be unable to benefit from a Churcher’s education.

It is hoped that that Senior School pupils will find innovative ways to raise more than £3,000 as a student body, matching the original amount Richard Churcher left in his will to set up Churcher's Collegel in 1722.

4D were also busy in December organising a raffle, by pooling all their 300 pennies and with generous donations they managed to secure some fabulous prizes.  With tickets being sold to pupils, staff and audience members of '1722: The Musical', they raised over £300 for the Richard Churcher Foundation.

Other pupils are busy using their pennies to raise further funds and we look forward to sharing their successes as they happen.

A big well done to 4D and 4G for setting the ball rolling.
