Sue Ryder Fundraiser by Caitlyn Ward Yr 12

For the past two years I have organised a fundraiser at school for Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice, where students have showcased a variety of musical performances to an audience in order to raise money. Sue Ryder is a charity that supports not just patients with terminal illness in their welcoming hospices, but also their families, including offering bereavement support. It means a lot to me to be able to raise money and awareness for such an important charity, as St John’s looked after my grandad before he died and really helped our family. It’s also a great opportunity to communicate with the people at the hospice during the organisation of the fundraiser, and to have a representative attend and speak at our evening. We have lots of plans to grow our fundraiser and make it more than just a one-evening event, too: there’s always so many options when raising money for charity. So far, we have raised a total of £673.53 from two evenings, with the hopes to raise even more this October, so help us by showing your support and coming along!
