charity nomination

Their impassioned, informative presentation together with their imaginative fundraising earned them £1,000 for their charity Woking and Sam Beare Hospices. Now Harriet Duffin, who led her Gordon’s School team of Tilly Phillips, Livvy Garner and Nathan Butler to victory, has been nominated for the First Give Student of the Year. She and the team have been invited to Cardiff for the awards ceremony with other shortlisted nominees across Greater London and South Wales. First Give encourages young people to give their time and talent to improve their community. Students from Year 9 identified social issues and engaged with local charities set up to tackle them. Then they set about fundraising and increasing awareness. All were competing for a cheque for £1,000 from First Give for their chosen charity. Harriet’s team appealed to staff and students to bring in their good quality secondhand clothes for stock in charity shops, raising £857 for the hospice charity.
