A SERIES of fund-raising events over the past few weeks at Malvern’s Dyson Perrins Church of England Academy has raised almost £2,000 for the Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
The fund-raising efforts have seen students and staff arrange pancake and cupcake sales, a raffle where the prizes were all donated by the school community, and also a non-uniform day where pupils made a £2 donation to wear blue and yellow clothing to school to demonstrate their support.
A total of £1,836.66 has been generate.
Fred Dowdeswell, Dyson Perrins’ finance and business manager, said: “I am very proud of the way everyone here has pulled together to raise money for the Ukraine Crisis Appeal and the final total is absolutely fantastic.
“It has been great to see students and staff to share their ideas and skills to organise and manage events and there has been a real drive from everyone to do their bit to help.
“The determination shown to raise as much money as possible was really heartening and I think it shows how touched our school community has been by the plight being faced by the people of the Ukraine.
“I would like to thank everyone for the part they have played in this terrific fundraising initiative, with special, additional mention going to people from the wider community in Malvern who have offered their support too.”
