Year 10 Charity Sleep-Out

A Year 10 team effort to help raise funds for their chosen charity.

44 Year 10 students, along with 5 members of staff, slept out under the stars to help raise funds for Off the Fence which is the year group’s dedicated charity. 

Paul Young, the charity’s founder, came along at the start of the evening to meet the students and thank them for all they have done to support the charity over the year.

After a simple dinner, the girls set up where they were going to sleep, some under tarpaulin, but most just settled down to sleep gazing up at the stars.

This year the group has raised almost £6000, and this experience might give them a small idea of what it feels like to sleep outside.
