Sixth Form CharityLast week the Sixth Form voted for a local charity to support this year, whilst practising their debating skills!
The students were divided into 5 groups and had to present their given charity to the rest of the class in order to win their vote.
The charities discussed were: RNLI, Shelter Box, St. Luke’s Hospice, Children’s Hospice South West and Jeremiah’s Journey.
After much debate and lamentations that they could only choose one, the winning charity was St Luke’s Hospice.
"We have been caring for thousands of terminally ill patients for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for over 30 years and our passion and dedication to offer dignity and choice has never dwindled. Our vision is a community, where no person has to die alone, in pain or in distress. Caring for local people, no matter where; at home; in hospital or at our specialist unit in Turnchapel."
Now that the Sixth Form have a chosen charity the students and staff can begin to plan some fun events to raise money for this worthwhile cause. A Vivo account has been set up for Sixth Form students to donate on a daily basis.
