Student Council Charity Events

Our Student Council have worked incredibly hard this past half term organising a range of fun activities for our students to get involved in, at the same time as raising money for the college's chosen charities. They have managed to raise £345 so far - well done to the Student Council and all those who have contributed. 

Report by Student Council member Dante Ferrante

The first term of this school year has been busy for the Student Council. We started out with a charity bake sale, raising money for our chosen charity ActionAid UK. After a long and intensive baking session in our kitchens, we successfully managed to raise £154 which will help women and young who are living in poverty to change their lives for the better. Alongside the bake sale, the Student Council asked the rest of the school to bring their old, unwanted clothes too. They managed to fill nine bags worth of clothes, which came from all over the world donated by our student body of up to 40 different nationalities! These clothes were taken by the Student Council to an Oxfam charity shop.

Following the success of our initial bake sale, we decided to sell more baked goods at the debate competition against our sister site, Kensington Park School. The event was a success for both CIC and its Council as we not only won the debate, but also raised £67 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, a charity that works to improve healthcare for children in the UK, and supports Great Ormond Street Hospital and its patients.

On 15th November, the Student Council held an annual football match in which four teams fought for charities of their choice. After six long and strenuous matches, the ‘Wondrous Wild Lifers’ came first and, therefore, secured the raised £80 for their selected charity, the WWF.

Lastly, we ended the term with the CIC Talent Show where many virtuosos and future stars were discovered. The glorious show also managed to raise £44 for Amnesty International, an organization which raises awareness of human rights and fights against injustice across the world.

On behalf of the Student Council and the various charities we supported, I would like to thank all those who aided or attended our events, and to those who donated to our charities. The Student Council have many new innovative ideas for fundraisers and charity events which will be launched soon. Stay tuned!
