Hungerhill School

Charity

Fundraising 2022-23

Fundraising is an integral part of the Hungerhill school ethos and our students relish the opportunity to raise money for a range of charities.

The aim this academic year is for each year group to raise at least £2000 for their charity. Each form group will host one fundraising event per term. There will be a variety of events from penalty shootouts to bake sales. Our Year 11 student leaders will support form groups in hosting the events throughout the year.

The money raised will be going to the following charities:

Year 7- Eve Merton Dreams Trust

Year 8 - Doncaster Mencap

Year 9- Firefly

Year 10- Mind Doncaster

Year 11- South Yorkshire Eating Disorder Association

During Autumn Term 2, we will be running our annual Year 7 Christmas Hamper competition. Each form group will design and create their own Christmas themed hamper and the food contents will be donated to the Trussell trust. Years 8-10 will take part in the Christmas Shoebox appeal. Students will work in their form groups to put together shoeboxes containing sweets, warm clothing items, stationary and toiletries to give to young children less fortunate than themselves. All shoeboxes will be donated to the Samaritan’s Purse charity.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance- Target reached!!!

All three Year 11 student leadership groups came together on Friday 10th December to run a Christmas Fayre. The Fayre was run for all year groups to attend over a 2-hour lunch period to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service, along with students paying £1 for wearing Christmas jumpers on the day. The students did an amazing job raising £730. This was added to our overall fundraising total for the YAA, allowing us to reach our target of £6000! On Wednesday 15th December Mrs Pond and our student leaders handed over a cheque for £6024 to a representative of the YAA.
