Milkshake Charity Fundraiser
Social Action including fundraising is important to all CTK St Mary’s students. Students have been exploring new ways to raise money for charity. Recently students supported ‘Power the Fight’; a youth-centred charity which aims to support local communities in the fight against youth violence. This was a charity chosen by the students themselves.
Students Jane Adegbesan and Tabitha Onafowokan feel passionately about the charity’s mission and put a great deal of hard work into organising an event which involved making a arrange of milkshakes. The highly successful event took place in the Chaplaincy and proved very popular with both students and staff.
The milkshakes included flavours such as Oreo, Hershey’s and Kinder Bueno, and were delicious. The day was a great success and both Jane and Tabitha were extremely happy with the outcome.
“We’ve been planning this event for quite some time.” States Jane, “We’re extremely happy the event has been successful, and we can’t wait to provide the charity with these funds. Power the Fight means a lot to us, as we have friends who have personally benefited from their work, and we hope it goes a long way!”
The sale managed to raise a fantastic £132 which will now be donated to the ‘Power the Fight’ Charity to help them in their mission to end youth violence. A massive well done to the student fundraisers as well as the staff and students that contributed!
