Langley Academy raises £395 in week-long fundraiser

Students at The Langley Academy raised a fantastic £395 for CLIC Sargent by selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts, wearing purple fancy dress and selling tickets to their very own cinema showing.

Miss Brock, the school's charity council and Charities Council coordinator, worked with students since before Christmas to plan a fundraising week to support a chosen charity.

To kick start the week, the charities council delivered a presentation on CLIC Sargent, explaining to others what the charity is and does.

Film showing

They then set to work on organising their first ever film showing of The Maze Runner, using their communications and negotiation skills to sell an amazing 50 tickets in the month leading up to their charity week.

Students who attended the film showing made further donations through the purchase of popcorn, sweets and refreshments. 

The week concluded with everyone wearing purple accessories in exchange for 50p. The Charities Council stood at the school gate welcoming students and collecting donations - and even those not wearing accessories donated to the cause.

Doughnut sale

The Charities Council then ran a doughnut sale at break time. Krispy Kreme in Slough kindly provided the academy with 216 doughnuts at a huge chartable discount.

The Charities Council at The Langley Academy said: “We are glad to say that we sold out of doughnuts extremely quickly with not even a crumb spare.

“In total, we raised £395. We would like to give a huge thank you to everyone for their support, both students and teachers.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Verity Gallagher said: “I was very surprised to be approached by Mr R. Endacott, head of sixth form, on return from a charity event, who at that very moment was reading through the Charities Council’s proposal for their week of fundraising.

“From then on I worked to support the school and what a pleasure it was. I will certainly be looking to go to this charity council to get a few more innovative fundraising ideas.”
