Life Skills Students' Christmas Fundraising
Published: 03 December 2021
Students in our Life Skills - SEND department have spent the last few weeks getting creative in the classroom, crafting Christmas tree ornaments, snowmen, Christmas biscuits and table decorations to sell at a local Christmas Market, organised by the Merstham Community Facility Trust (MCFT).

They've been regularly volunteering with MCFT, a charity offering a variety of services to the local community, including a Community Fridge, IT advice and travel support. Our students were excited to run a stall at their recent Christmas Charity Fair, selling the items they'd made, with all proceeds going to the charity. As well as being a fantastic way to get involved in the community, the students practised their communication skills running the stall, and mathematics as they raised money.
The students were excited to raise £56, which was handed over to the Community Centre Manager at the end of the event. Well done to all involved.
