Year 9 students raise money for Feed Our Pack
Wolves Foundation – Premier League Inspires – Feed Our Pack
Due to the success of a group of students in Year 9 working with the Wolves Foundation previously, another group of students have recently been working with Liam Turner from the foundation in order to work towards a qualification as well as developing their own interpersonal and self-management skills. The group of twelve Year 9 students were split into two and as part of their “Social Action” module organised two events to take place in school to raise money and awareness for the Wolves Foundation’s “Feed Our Pack” initiative. The aim of “Feed Our Pack” is to help reduce the effects of food poverty and support local residents who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Two events took place on the 10th and 11th June in order to raise money for the initiative. The first event saw a “Spongeathon” take place in which staff volunteers at Coppice had wet sponges thrown at them or were doused in buckets of water on the astroturf. The second event was the “Sweetooth Factory” in which milkshakes and pancakes were made on-site by the group of students and then sold at dinner time. Both events were a massive success with crowds of students flocking to the astroturf to get revenge on teachers and all milkshakes and pancakes were sold out. In total over £460 was raised which has then been passed on to the Wolves Foundation.
We would like to pass on a massive well done to the groups of students who were involved in the successful organising, setting up and execution of the events as well as to the members of staff who kindly volunteered to raise money for a good cause.
