5thMay

On Friday 5th May we held our annual Macmillan Sunderland Cancer patient support fundraising day. It started with the boys coming into school in their own clothes rather than uniform and contributing a £1.00 donation. Then on the afternoon the hall had a makeover by Mrs Whitten;  transforming the dining room ready for the Country and Western ‘Big Night In’ which was going to be attended by staff and their families and friends. The night was organised by Mrs Foreman and Miss Humble and they were very grateful for the brilliant prizes donated by local businesses within the local area for the Big Prize draw.

The evening was a huge success and had a lovely atmosphere as this charity is very close to all of our hearts as both staff and students have benefited from the support.
The total at the end of the day was a staggering amount of £ 2,302.50. This means that St Aidan’s Catholic Academy has raised nearly £10,000 over the last four years to make a difference to lives of cancer sufferers and their families in the Sunderland and North East area.
Deborah Spraggon from the charity came along to the event and quoted how she was overwhelmed at the kindness and generosity shown by everyone showing a strong sense of community.
