General Lifeline Information
Approximately 200 students take part in Lifeline volunteering to raise money for charity and to take part in various community events.
Lifeline meets in the Assembly Hall on a Tuesday at break-time. During these meetings we discuss events, organise volunteers, explain what jobs need done, and after the events have taken place, we decide what charities will be supported. The students make all final decisions about allocation of monies raised.
Recent events have included: a sponsored walk to support Rory Best on his ‘Miles to Mayo’ campaign to help raise vital funds for the Cancer Fund for Children which raised over £2000; a non-uniform day to help pay for the sponsorship of the education of three children through Plan International; a collection for our local food bank; and a toy donation to the Salvation Army’s Christmas Appeal
Annual events include: The Santa Trail for local primary school children every December; Spring Fun Day for year groups 11 and 12; a Colour Run for our sixth form students. Both events are very popular, and all proceeds are then donated to charities chosen by our own students.
