Comic Relief Fundraising Week

The Webber Independent School will be supporting 'Comic Relief' on March 15th and the Sixth Form are leading the school in a Comic Relief Fundraising Week. We aim to achieve as much success if not more as the last fundraising event (Pink Week) where we managed to raise £400! We hope to involve the whole school community in this series of events.

Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK that strives to create a just world free from poverty. Their mission is to drive positive change through the power of entertainment. They raise millions of pounds through two big fundraising campaigns: Red Nose Day and Sport Relief. They spend that money in the best possible way to tackle the root causes of poverty and social injustice, also using the power of their brand to raise awareness of the issues.

Comic Relief Red Noses will be sold throughout the week Monday 11th – Friday 15th March during form time and in the foyer for a suggested donation of £1.50.

During the week from 11th March to the 15th, there will be multiple activities for students to attend and enjoy. Click 'learn more' for full details.

Cake Competition: Wednesday 13th March, 9am, Parent Café
50p entry fee. Bake a cake with a comic relief themed design/decoration (you will not be judged on taste, just presentation). Hand in your cake to the Parent Café, Wednesday 13th 9:00am for Deborah, the catering manager, and the catering team to judge. The winner will be announced the same day and receive a prize. The cakes will then go on to be sold throughout the rest of the week at break and lunch. Please do not use nuts due to allergies.
