In October 2005, Fir Vale School, Winterhill School (Rotherham), and Barnsley and Doncaster Technology Colleges took part in a fund-raising challenge. Fir Vale planned a charity fair involving poetry from Debjani Chatterjee, food and mendi from the Pakistan Muslim Centre, music from Fir Vale’s music department, Green City Action, silent auctions and lots of other activities.
We raised £950 collectively from all our mini projects and have donated this to the Pakistan earthquake appeal. We would like to thank everyone for coming. It was all of the community that made our event successful. Thank you to everyone who came or gave money or donated items.
