The partnership started after student, Aidan, nominated CLIC Sargent as his and his sister’s close friend, Evelyn, is being supported by the charity in her cancer treatment at The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton.
The Trinity Parent’s Association committee have worked incredibly hard organising three very successful events for CLIC Sargent. The first one being a Grease themed ball in November where parents were treated to a three course meal and lots of dancing! This was followed by a Quiz Night in March which saw parents and teachers get competitive for the winning title.
The final event was the Trinity Proms which was a fantastic finale to the year and guests were treated to live music, food, drink and a mesmerising firework display to end the night. The night also saw Aidan, his sister, Mia, and Evelyn accept the cheque on behalf of CLIC Sargent.
Evelyn received a huge round of applause when on stage.
Nicole Wylie, Chair of the Parent’s Association said: "The Trinity Proms was a wonderful finale to a successful year of raising funds for CLIC Sargent."
"Inspired by an individual story of a young girl close to a Trinity School student who was supported by the charity in her cancer journey."
"The Trinity parents have fully supported our fund raising efforts and raised over £11,000. It has been a pleasure and privilege working with CLIC Sargent who brought lots of smiles and energy to our events."
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager Mairi Wilson said: “I cannot thank the Trinity Parent Association enough for all their hard work and dedication this year, it has been wonderful working with them. I would also like to thank the Trinity parents for their generosity and supporting Young Lives vs. Cancer.”
