World Porridge Day - Thursday 10 October 2019
Princethorpe College will once again be supporting World Porridge Day in aid of the Scottish-based charity Mary’s Meals. The fundraising fun will be championed by Sixth Form students and Mr Isaacs, Assistant Head of Sixth Form, who will be organising a range of Scottish and porridge themed activities for pupils to get involved in.
At break-time instead of buying their usual mid-morning snack, pupils will be able to purchase a traditional Scottish breakfast, a pot of porridge, from the College refectory with brown sugar or luxurious toppings. (Our usual cashless catering arrangements apply). Then at lunchtime, for a cash donation of just 50p, the brave will be able participate in the William Wallace Welly Wanging Challenge. For the honour of their house (Benet won last year!) and mouthwatering fudge, they can attempt to break the College record which currently stands at a whopping 33m. Mr Haden came close last year with an amazing 32.5m!
All of the money raised on the day will be used to support our feeding programme at Makalanga Primary School in Malawi. Why not consider sponsoring a child for a year by donating £13.90 via our dedicated fundraising page here.
We have big blue coin collection mugs available for free – please contact Mr Isaacs at email@example.com if you would like one.
