Crompton House certainly put the ‘fun’ into fundraising this year for #RedNoseDay2022! Students didn’t need asking twice if they would like to ‘sponge the teacher’ and over £300 was raised for Comic Relief!
Roving reporter Courtney Latif in Y10 wrote this article about the day:
At Crompton House we organised a sponge throwing contest at the teachers and face painting to raise money for charities who support children and help ensure they get the best start in life. Dr Whitworth and Doctor Pannell both said:
“As a fortunate school, it is important that we share what we have – to raise money in a fun way is the most important thing about Comic Relief”
Headteacher Mr Newell commented that importance of Comic Relief is “having fun whilst helping the people less fortunate than ourselves without really realising it.”
Mr Dunkley felt it was important to raise money for Comic Relief to “show our support and to drive positive change through the power of fun.”
As you can see from the photos, we all had a lot of fun and the teachers were very good sports!
We would like to say a massive thank you to the Sixth Formers who organised this event, to the teachers for allowing sponges to be thrown at them, but most of all to all the students who took part, because without you we would not have raised any money at all for a great cause.
Comic relief was founded in 1985 by screenwriter Richard Curtis and comedian Sir Lenny Henry. The charity was initially set up in response to a huge famine in Ethiopia, Africa. It has since evolved and now raises money for vulnerable and disadvantaged people in both the UK and Africa.
