On Friday 11th April, Pupils at 40 Calderdale Schools took part in a ‘Dress down for a £1’ non-uniform day to raise money for the Ravenscliffe@SpringHall project. The event raised an incredible £15,483.
Thousands of Calderdale school children took the opportunity to dress down, and paid £1 for the privilege, all for the benefit of their friends and peers at Ravenscliffe.
Head Teacher at Ravenscliffe High School, Martin Moorman said: “This unique day was part of the fundraising campaign which will allow the new Sixth Form provision at Spring Hall to begin in earnest. The benefits to both Ravenscliffe and the community across Calderdale will be enormous. This is a very ambitious project but I am certain that with the continued support from our community, this will soon become a reality.”
Calderdale Council Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services, Cllr Megan Swift said: “It was fantastic that children across Calderdale joined together to help raise money for Ravenscliffe. I’m really proud of all our young people, it really demonstrated a great community spirit.”
