Barlborough Hall School’s cracking Easter raffle raises hundreds of pounds for charity

Barlborough Hall School pupils host Easter ‘egg-travaganza’ and raise more than £500 for local charities

In total pupils donated 165 Easter eggs and everyone in school was invited to buy raffle tickets. More than 1,000 tickets were sold and each year group had a first, second and third place winner who all won chocolate eggs.

“This was a fantastic Easter fundraiser which involved our whole school community,” said Barlborough Hall School Headteacher Karen Keeton.

“We sold 1,120 tickets which raised an amazing £560.00 for the Good Shepherd Fund which will be used to help children in the Hallam Diocese.”

“We had an abundance of remaining Easter eggs which have been divided up between different charities including the New Hope Food Bank in Killamarsh.”

Mrs Keeton said it was wonderful to be able to do something as a school family at the end of a term which began with remote learning.

She added: “This was a wonderful initiative which encompasses the very essence of what we are about – shaping young people to become young men and women for others.”
