Pupils at All Saints Marsh raise money for vital causes

Year 6 pupils at All Saints Marsh, which is part of the Learning Academy Partnership (LAP), have been fundraising for their community.

Throughout the first term of the school year, the pupils have been participating in the Torbay and Devon Civic Award Charity by raising money for a range of important causes. The Civic Award encourages pupils to come up with creative ways to support their community.

A group of pupils raised a tremendous £176.13 for Bowel Cancer by organising a fantastic cake sale. They baked a wonderful selection of yummy cakes including gluten-free chocolate cake, cookies, brownies, red velvet cake, white chocolate rice crispy cakes and carrot cake.

The cake sale was hosted at the Rec in Newton Abbot, and the pupils designed leaflets to drop round to local residents advertising the event. The pupils really enjoyed baking and were thrilled with how much everyone enjoyed their cakes.

Another group of Year 6 pupils organised a ‘Jeans for Genes’ day as part of their Civic Award. Thanks to the support of all the staff, families and wider community, the group raised an impressive £109.36 to go towards helping people with genetic disorders.

Finally, ahead of the festive period, Year 6 pupils also organised a Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children. Everyone at the school really enjoyed celebrating the holidays in brightly coloured jumpers, as well as raising a fantastic £60 for such a great charity.

Laura Secker, Head of Academy at All Saints Marsh, said: 

“A massive well done to our amazing Year 6 class this term, they have shown fantastic leadership skills and made a great effort to support members of our community. I am very much looking forward to seeing what they have in store for next year.”
