Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College students and staff have taken part in their own annual Givemas fundraising campaign, which this year included collections for Harbour Place, The Ark and Jerry Green, NHS staff, and the Women’s Refuge. They collected non-perishable foods for Harbour Place, dog and cat food for the animal shelters, toiletries for the NHS, and brand new toys to suit a wide range of age groups for the Women’s Refuge.
Katie Clorley, of the Sixth Form Leadership Team, said: “The Student Ambassadors and Sixth Form Leadership Team are both proud and humbled by the huge range of toys and gifts donated by staff and students throughout the whole Academy. So many members of our Academy community have collectively purchased age appropriate donations ensuring each age group within the refuge appeal has a gift.”
Caroline Yates, Principal of Tollbar Academy and Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College, said: “I am so very proud of every single student and member of staff who has contributed to the charity collections and fundraising activities this year. It has been the most difficult of years for everyone and yet they have all taken time to think of others and to give so generously to help such a wide variety of causes.”
