Last week Budehaven presented money raised during July’s sponsored walk to two local fundraising charities.
The Light up Bude committee were presented with a cheque for £500 to go towards the new lights being set around the town.
Budehaven students Libby and Lilly presented the cheque to Jools from Light Up Bude, as both students were inspirational in their own fundraising for the walk raising a staggering £1000 between them.
As walk organisers, Rob Byrom and Martin Reay wanted to give some of the funds raised to local charities. Light Up Bude were exactly in their remit. With the school’s donation the pupils at Budehaven will see a tangible reward at Christmas as they enjoy the display over the festive period.
Libby and Lilly also presented Bude’s Food Bank with a cheque for £500 to support families over the Christmas time. Steve from Oceans Food Bank said the money will go a long way in supporting those struggling over the next few months and will bring a smile to many faces.
Budehaven also gave a proportion of the money raised from the “Grand Day Out” to Clic Sergeant and Bliss charities. The remainder of the fundraising will be given back to those students at Budehaven on a termly basis, who are putting in consistently high levels of effort across their subjects and contributing positively to the fabric of the school.
This money will be given in the form of Budehaven Achievement Vouchers and will be redeemable in affiliated local shops in town.
