On Friday 18th November, Etone College supported Children in Need along with the rest of the nation.
To start the day off we held our annual non-school uniform day. There is always a buzz of excitement whenever we host charity events and this was no exception. There were some really spot-tacular outfits as pupils fully embraced the theme of Spottiness. From pupils bringing in £1 to wear non-uniform we raised a total over £900.
Not to be outdone by the lower schools fantastic efforts our Sixth Formers led by the Etone Elect were out in force to improve their total raised for charity so far this year. First of all the pupils hosted a fancy dress competition with the theme being pyjama party. However, no one had to drag themselves out of bed as the offer of some amazing prizes in the Etone raffle and the call of some delicious treats in the bake sale was more than enough to tempt our students into action.
The day, as usual, was a tremendous success and a special shout-out has to go to out Charity Committee for the fantastic work they have done in raising the profile across the school. We are really excited to start the next set of charitable initiatives with our Foodbank, Toy-drive and Christmas Jumper Days upcoming in December.
In total we have raised:£968.35 total amount for the day and added this to our total raised so far this year to give us a whopping: £1549.15.
