Annual Stayawake. BEST. YEAR. EVER!

Each year 6th form students from Fulston raise money for a Charity called Lepra. It is a UK-registered international charity focusing on people who are trapped at the intersection of disease, poverty and prejudice

Each year 6th form students from Fulston raise money for a Charity called Lepra. It is a UK-registered international charity focusing on people who are trapped at the intersection of disease, poverty and prejudice. Lepra helps these sufferers to improve their health, lives and livelihoods by opening up avenues of knowledge and facilities so that diagnosis and care regimes can be significantly changed before they are pushed further into poverty. Just £25 can buy medicine to save a life. 

On Friday the 11th of November 150 Students and 21 staff took part in an all-night 'StayAwake', which meant staying in school from 7pm until 7am the next morning. 

During the night there were a variety of activities to keep the students awake, this included a Zumba workout and a University Challenge style quiz in the early hours. One of the highlights was the dancing skills of Mr Vigeon who wore a wonderful green tutu for the Zumba workout. Mrs Crawford embodied Mary Berry, running a very successful ‘Bake-Off’ competition.  Mr Patey showed tremendous endurance refereeing the 5-a-side football match, which lasted almost 4 hours whilst Miss Davies led a fast-paced Bench Ball competition.  Mr Rayfield and Miss Nock displayed their wonderful artistic flairs by painting the majority of our 6th form faces throughout the night.

Miss Davies said “We are delighted to announce that 2016 has been our most successful year ever with regards to raising money for Lepra. The jaw dropping amount of £5,467.36 has shocked everyone as it is so tremendous! The most money raised was by Lucy Burns (Year 12) who raised £201 but congratulations go to each and every one of the students who took part”.

Mrs Relf, who was a key figure in organizing the event wanted to thank you to everyone that contributed towards this amazing fund raising opportunity.
