Charity Event


Katie L in Year 9 at Outwood Academy Portland was so impressed with a recent assembly in school, that it gave her a great idea to begin organising a charity event.

Katie worked tirelessly to ensure that everything was in place ready for the event on Saturday 9th March 2019. Although it was a cold, wet windy day in Batley, West Yorkshire. The event was a fantastic success, Katie's brilliant efforts and hard work paid off. As part of the event there was a Cake Sale, Hook a Duck, Name the Teddy Bear, Chocolate Tombola, Toy Tombola and a Raffle.

Katie raised a massive total of £200, she decided to donate half to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and the other half to Martin House Hospice which cares for children and young people.
Well done Katie you are an outstanding caring young lady.
