As part of our COPE project some students from KS4 ran a small Easter fair for students in school. The pupils organised the event themselves to complete a unit for their award, working together to raise money for a charity of their choice. Pupils decided to support the local charity ‘Make Easter Special’, which is a charity they have supported before, who allow for local people to attend a gathering, who may not have the chance to have a celebration of their own over the Easter weekend.
Pupils ran a cake stall, a guess the name of the bunny, a tombola and count the number of eggs. Pupils raised £90 for the charity, who have expressed their thanks for our support to put on the event for vulnerable local people.
