Frodsham & District Ladies Circle Spark Engagement in Current Affairs at Helsby High School

Mr S Edwards | |

Earlier this year Helsby High School was delighted to receive a cheque for £800 from Frodsham & District Ladies Circle. The donation was a very welcome surprise and this was made possible by fundraising opportunities at Frodsham Festival of Football. Mr Dowler, Headteacher and several year 7 & 8 students, who had helped out at the event, were pleased to receive the cheque at a presentation made by Chair of the Ladies Circle Sue Daly and member Karen Prescott.

The school has recently undertaken student voice to decide how the money donated should be spent to benefit the majority of our students.  The students have decided upon an annual subscription to First News.  We are very pleased, as First News is the perfect tool to spark early engagement in current affairs with students.  Our subscription makes news and issues of today accessible to all our students.  The donation has allowed us to purchase sixteen paper copies for form classes in Year 7 to 8 and a digital version with unlimited use across all other year groups.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Frodsham & District Ladies Circle for their very generous donation.
