Students and staff will be going dotty to support this year’s Children in Need charity campaign.
Members of Highfields’ Student Leadership Charity Committee have organised a series of events and activities to support the fundraising drive on Friday, November 18.
The theme for this year’s Children In Need extravaganza is ‘Show Us Your Spots and Raise Lots’ and students will be allowed to wear an item of clothing, such as spotty tie or socks, in exchange for a £1 donation. Strips of spotty stickers will also be available on the day, costing £1, to allow students to customise their school tie for the event.
As well as dressing up, students are also being encouraged to take part in a number of other activities on the day, including a lunchtime Pudsey Treasure Hunt, in exchange for a 50p donation. There will also be a fundraising Fitness Frenzy taking place in the Sports Hall as well as a confectionery raffle and competition to guess the number of sweets in a jar.
Children in Need is the BBC’s charity which works to change the lives of disabled children and young people in the UK. It has raised £600 million since it was launched in 1980.
Students are reminded that items of clothing worn instead of the standard uniform on the day must be free from slogans, inappropriate language or illustrations. Baseball caps and trainers are not permitted.
