St George Students raise funds by soaking their teachers and making cake

Staff at St George’s College in Weybridge put themselves in the line of fire to help raise funds for our Lent Fast Day appeal shortly before Easter. Students donated generously for the chance of hurling wet sponges at their teaches. Students were delighted and staff were wet, despite their attempts to cover up with ponchos.

The water based challenge was particularly fitting as the focus of our Lent Fast Day appeal was Florence who had received training to become fish farmers.

There was also a cake sale to aid in the efforts, all of which raised £584 for our work. The event was organised by two students who are part of our young leaders training program. They will also be helping to lead a social justice day for year 8s later on in the year.

We would like to thank the organisers, the soaked and willing teachers and all who took part in the fundraising. Our thanks also go to St George’s for the photos.
