Music Evening And Christmas Fairs Boost Fundraising For Malawi 2020
Huge congratulations to Year 11 pupil, Robyn Field, who together with fellow Princethorpe pupils Mary Lomas, Greg Burford, Conor Fernandez and Elsie Kelley, raised over £3,000. The money will be shared between the College’s Classrooms For Malawi initiative and the Warwickshire and Coventry Youth Orchestra, for whom Robyn plays.
Robyn, with help from her family, organised a special evening of music at Barby Village Hall that took place on Saturday 23 November. The very successful event was a sell-out and a great night was had by all. Princethorpe’s pupils provided a host of entertainment as well as waiting on tables and selling raffle tickets on the night. Local band, The Tunnellers, for whom Robyn sings and plays the electric violin, finished the night off with a double set.
The event has given a great boost to the College’s fundraising for the Malawi trip in July 2020, where pupils will take part in a series of activities and challenges that include working with Classrooms For Malawi in a refurbishment project at Lauderdale School.
There is plenty of other fundraising afoot for Malawi, Lower Sixth Former Lauren Mason’s stalls at the College Christmas Fair and Crackley Hall Winter Wonderland brought in £236.50 and Charlotte Fitzpatrick’s festive CDs are selling steadily.
