Students at Fulston Manor School were pleased to welcome Miss Victoria Adley, Senior Community Fundraiser for Demelza Hospice For Children to accept a cheque during school assembly on Friday 29th November. A record breaking £7908.75 was raised in one night by the 6th Form students who spent from 7.00pm on Friday 8th November until 7.00am the next day singing, dancing, baking, quizzing and anything else that staved off the yawns. Vicky spoke to the 1200 students in front of her and explained that the amount raised was enough to cover: 4 Demelza music festivals for our teenagers, the cost of our gaming and cinema facilities for 7 years, it would pay for 132 Music or Art Therapy sessions, for the children we support or their families, 720 hours of precious care and, not forgetting, over two years’ worth of toilet rolls!. Vicky said “We cannot thank the 6th Form students enough. This amount will make such a huge difference to so many families”. Miss Davies agreed. “ We are just so proud of our students. It is a long and tiring night but the enthusiasm with which our students tackle this because they know how much good they are doing makes us burst with thanks to them”.
