Following on from the success of the LHS Chairty fundraising in 2016-2017 in which we raised nearly £34,000 for a variety of wonderful charities, including  Rebuilding Sri Lanka, Macmillan, Teenage Cancer Trust, Children with Cancer, Jeans for Genes and many more, we kicked off the Autumn term with equal enthusiasm.

The whole school has been raising money for Loughborough Youth Development Project.  LYDP is an alternative education provision and social enterprise providing a unique learning environment for young people aged 11-16 years old, who aren’t able to cope with mainstream education and is based in Loughborough.

So far, Year 7 are leading the way with their fundraising by holding various events including a movie night and a sponsored silence, raising £1,144. We would especially like to congratulate 7ER who have raised the most as a form this term, raising £511.

Sixth form have also done exceptionally well, collectively raising over £1,440 by holding a Macmillan coffee morning and many pizza sales. 13RT have raised the most in the sixth form collecting £321 in donations and 29 sacks of toys for the Charnwood Toy Appeal.

The other year group totals are: year 8 raised £403, year 9 have raised £245, year 10 raised £395 and year 11 raised £152.

The three non-uniform days raised over £2,000 and £668 was collected for the Royal British Legion through poppy sales, Carols in the Carillon for Rainbows raised over £300 and the Tableaux retiring collection raised over £1040.

The total raised at the end of term was an incredible £8,168!

All of our charity events would not be possible without the support of the students, their families and the LHS staff, for which we are extremely grateful.

In the Spring term, each year group will choose a different charity to support. Sixth Form will be supporting the Air Ambulance Service, Years 9 and 10 have chosen to fund raise for Action Against Hunger, Year 8 – Children with Cancer, UK and Year 7 Guide Dogs for the Blind.

We look forward to another term filled with cake sales, sponsored silences, car washes, raffles, pizza sales and anything else that our students can come up with!
