Ryburn Red Nose Days always put the fun into fundraising and this year's was a great success. Our Charity Leaders planned and organised the day, which included a bake sale, a non-uniform day and the legendary Teacher Torture event.
Year 7 and 8 students paid to watch their favourite teachers get covered in gunge, have their legs waxed, eat super hot chilli and stinky raw onion, or inflict their singing voices on us. What fantastic sports they were.
Over all we raised over £1400 on the day, an amazing amount! Ryburn is now officially a Comic Relief Super School, in recognition of our impressive fundraising efforts, so a very big THANK YOU and well done to everyone who donated.
As well as Comic Relief, the school and our Charity Leaders have decided to also donate a portion of the money to a local cause: a fundraising campaign to support the work of the brain surgery team at LGI, who saved the life of local teenager Jake Moorman after he suffered major brain trauma. Jake, along with his Dad Martin, Headteacher at Ravenscliffe Special School, and brother Harry are walking the 500 mile Camino de Santiago this Easter to raise money to thank the team.
