Liskeard School & Community College and Liskeard Sixth Form had an incredible year in 2013 raising money and awareness for an array of charities both locally and around the world.

In total across the year through the organising and running of a range of activities and events, staff, students and parents raised £10,764.37 for good causes.

Non-uniform days were observed for Children in Need and Comic Relief along with numerous activities and cake sales at break and lunch time. Onesies and pyjamas were worn in aid of the Philippines Disaster Fund, jeans were worn for Jeans for Genes Day and an array of pink was sported for Wear it Pink Day in aid of Breast Cancer.

The male staff grew moustaches during the month of November for Movember raising money and awareness for men’s health charities.

Students put their baking skills into numerous cake sales to raise money for charities like Children’s Hospice South West and Macmillan Cancer Support and a talent show was put on to support the WWF. The more physical activities included a run for Devon Air Ambulance.

Claudia Brown raised £72 for Macmillan Nurses in memory of her Nan.

We were also delighted to be visited by the Pearl of Africa Children’s Choir from Uganda. A concert held at the school and craft sales raised £498.71 and the Uganda team raised an astonishing £4,500 for solar panels for the clinic, sports equipment for the school and toys for the orphanage.

Headteacher Donna Bryant commented "As a Cooperative Trust school one of our ethical principles is 'caring for others'. The students and staff have more than demonstrated their commitment to others and we as a school are enormously proud." Liskeard School has a strong tradition of fundraising and we are delighted to raise money and awareness for so many great causes. We look forwardto more of the same in 2014!
