My school has helped to raise money for ‘Target Ovarian Cancer’, a charity very close to my heart, by holding it’s very own ‘Purple Day’ in the Sixth Form.

It has been such a phenomenal feeling knowing how much support my Sixth Form peers have given to the cause, as well as teachers who have donated to this charity. For me, it’s such a gratifying experience being able to make a difference in people’s lives.

Holly Cutland and Aisha Ratnasabathy (Y8) have also been amazing as they have made purple ribbons to sell to their friends to raise even more money for this charity.

Tonight, Ruari Murray (Year 13) and I will be shaving our heads (#BravingtheShave) to continue our fundraising spree in the hopes of reaching our target of £17,000.

Matt Allman, Headteacher, added: “We are incredibly proud of the work that Jaye and the wider student body have put in to raise funds for ‘Target Ovarian Cancer’. It is a charity main of us have taken to our heart and we feel sure Jaye will lead the way to the ambitious fund-raising target.”
