October group

This year's fundraising events have involved a bake sale and on Saturday 2nd May, the team did a bag packing fundraising event in Waitrose in fleet to raise much needed funds for the charity Ocean Stars.  The team raised an amazing £625.52 which will be used directly during the trip to fund projects which will help young people in educational projects.

Another fundraising event brought about by Mrs Haynes this year is to recycle old clothes, belts and shoes through the RagBag scheme and students have been collecting their unwanted goods which will be weighed and sent off as affordable second hand clothing.  This is a great scheme and we can get £400 per tonne of clothing for the charity so please help turn out unwanted items!

The team is also taking part in this year's London to Brighton bike ride where we plan to cycle the 52 miles and many students and parents are taking part in the gruelling cycle ride.  To sponsor the team, please visit our JustGiving page to make a donation: http://www.justgiving.com/oceanstarsbikers2015
