Grange School fundraiser

A fundraising day held by staff and Year 11 students at Shrewsbury’s Grange Secondary School has helped to boost funds for this year’s leavers’ prom.

More than £600 was raised during the day and this will be used to help stage prom night in the summer for those pupils in their final year at the school.

Both students and teachers donned fancy dress outfits for the fundraiser which was held last week at the Grange.

Teacher Elaine Jones, who helped to organise the event, said that it had been a great success.

“Every single penny from the day will be used towards prom night for the Year 11 students who will be leaving us in the summer,” she said.

“It will help to pay for the food, decorations and the photographer – we are one of the few schools which actually stages its prom on school premises and it always turns out to be a wonderful community event.

“The fundraiser was fantastic fun - it included a show at break time put on by the Year 11s and also a performance of Let’s Get Ready to Rumble by some brave members of staff.

“During lunchtime students manned stalls in the hall including tombolas, cake sales and name the teddy.

“The event gave students something to really be proud of as they were raising money for what will be a special evening for them as they leave the school at the end of the summer term.”
