The Whickham Walk
When we return to school in September our fundraising will resume in fine style with the “Whickham Walk.” It will be an opportunity for the whole school to take part in a sponsored walk to help raise funds for our new school. Our target is to walk a total of 10,000 km between us.
The route will be 5km long starting at school, following a loop along the Derwent Walk and returning back to school. Students will take part in their lap of the Whickham Walk during the school day on 3rd and 4th of September with a special twi-light lap scheduled for family, friends, staff and Governors at 6pm on Wednesday 4th.
This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved, support school and work off some of those summer pounds. To join in simply download your sponsorship form here sponsorship form
If walking isn’t for you perhaps you could organise your own sponsored event, it could be anything from a sponsored silence to a dance-a-thon. You could get creative and host your own event – it’s a great opportunity to raise funds whilst having fun with family and friends, from coffee mornings or girls’ nights in to bake sales, community car wash days or a Karaoke night at your local – the possibilities are limitless. A great way to raise funds is by clearing out the clutter. Earn money for old rope (or shoes, or curtains, or books for that matter) by holding a boot sale or on-line auction and donate the proceeds to us. Setup your own just giving page by going to our campaign page https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/WhickhamNewSchool and selecting the “Start Fundraising” button so we can watch your progress and maximise your support by sharing it across our networks.
Why not make your gift to Whickham School go even further and maximise your donation to make a bigger impact. You could ask your employer if they have a gift/donation matching programme, contact your HR department for more information. If you think your employer may be interested in giving too or would like to hear more about our corporate sponsorship opportunities then we would like to hear from you so we can make the appropriate approaches to them with your support.
