This term Attleborough Academy Sixth Form donated a cheque for £580 to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Students who were involved in the recruitment process for the Presidential Team were all highly active in raising money for this worthwhile cause: through refreshments and stalls at the whole academy Sports’ Day and through non-uniform donations.
The Teenage Cancer Trust is devoted to improving the lives of young people diagnosed with cancer. They provide invaluable accommodation for young people suffering from cancer to be solely amongst patients their own age,by providing specialist units within NHS hospitals in relaxing and peaceful surroundings.
This wonderful charity aims to increase awareness amongst young people of the warning signs of the rare instances of youth cancer. A representative from this charity has made regular visits to AAN to develop greater understanding about the illness and to encourage students to be pro-active in looking for warning signs. It was with pleasure, when Morwenna from the Trust came this term to speak to our Sixth Formers this term, that we were able to donate £580 to this extremely worthy cause.
