Our new 3G Pitch is due in September and fundraising activities are underway!
A team of Year 7 swimmers took part in the Rotary Swimathon 2019 to help raise funds for our new 3G Pitch. The students swam in two sessions on Friday and Saturday evening and were sponsored by friends and family – well done to everyone involved.
Tesco Bags of Help
A huge thank you to everyone who supported Vale Juniors in the ‘Tesco Bags of Help’ initiative. Their bid received the most votes meaning an additional £4,000 towards the 3G Pitch at Eaton Bank Academy.
Friends of Eaton Bank and volunteers joined Santa on his sleigh in Lower Heath collecting for local charities, including our new community 3G pitch. Thank you to the PTA, staff and sixth form students who helped support Santa and to the local residents who donated generously to such worthwhile causes.
A team of over 30 students and staff took part in a fundraising bag-pack at Morrisons before Christmas. The students were fantastic and the Morrisons shoppers were very generous donating a total of £750 for the new 3G pitch.
Our final fundraising activity of December was the Rotary Christmas Concert at Daneside Theatre which featured Silk Brass, Eaton Bank choir and violinist Josh Evett. A massive ‘Thank you’ to our students and to The Rotary Club for their donation of £1500 from the concert.
We would like to thank everyone for their time, support and generous donations – it is much appreciated.
