The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation has supported Beaucroft Foundation School for several years and recently provided the Post 16 Department with funding to buy some tents so that the students would be able to complete their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Awards. The students were determined to help others in return and decided that they would raise as much money as possible for the JTYAF so that other young people could benefit as they had been able to do.
In June they started preparing for Christmas!
Every Monday afternoon saw the students busy designing and creating Christmas crafts and gifts which included cards, bunting, Santa's trousers filled with sweets, gift tags, chocolate reindeers with price tags ranging from 50p to £2.50. It took an amazing amount of hard work and dedication to reach the incredible £700 total and the students should be very proud of what they achieved.
Pete Thornton was delighted to receive the BIG cheque, which was presented by the students above on behalf of the Post 16 Department.
Well done and thank you to everyone involved for working so hard to help us to help other young people.
