Charity Update

Dynamo Movember
The start of December saw many of our male staff reach for a razor for the first time. They joined together as Team Dyna-Mo and by sprouting facial hair they raised more than £500 for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

AA Car Checks
Two Sixth Form Students managed to get the AA to volunteer time at the academy to carry out winter checks on the cars of our staff. The checks were carried out for free and staff made donations to charity. The event was extremely successful raising money for Africa and ensuring that staff were driving safe cars.

Great Midland Fun Run – Pancreatic Cancer
On the last Sunday in November two members of staff were at the GMFR Presentation Evening, where they presented a cheque for £11,800 to Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund. A number of staff to part in the run and next year we are looking to increase our representation. The GMFR is not a race, but the opportunity for charities to raise money by walking, jogging and running round the largest open parkland in the area. If you are thinking about getting fit why not get in touch with Mr Fenn and join our team.
