WOHAA Teams Raise £1,600 For Charity

Thursday 3rd April 2014

Pupils involved in the Wings of Hope Achievement Award (WOHAA) have raised £1,600 for charity during an action-packed three month fundraising campaign.

Queen Anne’s teams, L&Co and Fusion, held a number of events and sold a variety of products throughout the Trinity term to help raise money to fund schools in India and Malawi. L&Co raised £1,400 by holding a L4 and 4s Social, organising an International Cafe selling traditional Nigerian, Chinese, Malaysian and Italian food, and selling headphones and Tribal Jewellery to students during break and lunch times. L&Co also organised a test for parents entitled “Are you smarter than your daughter?”, which they showcased at the QASPA Charity Spring Fayre held on Saturday 29 March. Fusion got involved in the campaign by holding cake sales, making goodie bags for Mother’s Day and selling milkshakes.

The nationally recognised competition sees students organise activities and projects whilst developing transferable skills such as time management, team work and leadership. The fundraising section of the competition closed on 31 March and teams will now be shortlisted to present their projects at the House of Lords in front of a panel of judges including Sir David Jason, Deborah Meaden, Entrepreneur and Dragon’s Den Judge, and Baroness Scott, President of the Liberal Democrats.
