Our members get creative with fundraising

Our Woking centre launched a fundraising event for their Succeed in Secondary members, and we were so impressed with the fantastic ways they came up with to raise money for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity!

Each group prepared their own activities that they would run throughout a week, and in the run up to the activities we helped them to build skills in:

– marketing
– organisation
– researching the charity
– producing market research in graphs
– producing questionnaires
– writing formal letters…

…and loads more!

Our members had some fantastic ideas to raise money – which included a tasty bake sale, a book sale, a wobbly, jelly eating competition and a ‘twits’ themed spaghetti game!

We’re so proud of all the effort our members put in to their activities, and they raised an unbelievable £176.76 for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity! 

This is just one example of the ways that we at Explore keep young people motivated, using dynamic and youth-orientated topics to practise skills that enable your child to succeed in secondary school.
