Congratulations to the Sixth Form boys who have completed the challenge to grow a moustache for Movember, raising funds for the Sam West Foundation, a charity close to our hearts. Tom Gray, Jack Lewis, Matthew Rackliffe, George Samuels, Herbie Stephenson, Noah Swaine and Luke Trigg took up the challenge to grow the best moustache, with the winners announced in Assembly today.
The Sam West Foundation promotes awareness, diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues affecting children, young adults and their families. It was set up by the parents of Sam West, in his memory. Sam showed talent in Music and Art which is remembered through the charity’s second objective, to advance the education of teenagers in these areas of the curriculum.
We are very proud of our Sixth Form students who were involved in this fundraising and congratulate them on the magnificent total raised of over £3500. Well done to all the boys but especially to George Samuels, the winner of the ‘Beardiest Beard’, Noah Swaine, the winner of the ‘Most Well-groomed Beard’ and Tom Gray who raised the most money for the charity, an amazing £1001.
