Next week, Second Year are hosting a Talent Show, which will raise funds to help support the homeless this Christmas.
Taking place on 26th November in The Mitre Theatre, at 13.30, tickets can be bought online or via cash. See instructions below. There are also overflow tickets available due to social distancing requirements, whereby it is possible to watch a livestream from a form room from £1.
This is part of a wide variety of fun, fund-raising initiatives happening next week, including mufti day, on Friday.
Claire Burrage, Head of Community Action, explains that Trinity is currently supporting mental health charities, YoungMinds and Mind; Macmillan, which supports those affected by cancer; Status Employment, a local charity which assists people with disabilities and mental health problems in finding and retaining employment; Shrublands Trust and Shelter.
“Normally, each form chooses a charity to support via such initiatives, but this term this was done in year group bubbles so that we could raise more for specific charities and really make an impact,” says Claire. “Students pay £2 for the privilege of coming to school in their own clothes and also run stalls at break and lunchtime. The money is paid to form tutors and then goes to the chosen charities. Very often, we make two or three thousand pounds for these charities in one day.
“Also on mufti day there will be selling of pre-wrapped tuck shop items, tombolas and key-ring making – again, all in year group bubbles. There will also be sports challenges. It’s great that we could go ahead this year, even with these limitations. It’s something that students really look forward to – knowing they are raising money whilst having a great time, too.”
Good luck to those involved in the Talent Show and well done to students and staff who are helping to raise funds at this difficult time. For Mufti day, please try to bring in small change or the correct amount, in order to avoid the handling of cash.
