First Give final sees pupils win £1500 for chosen charities
The final of the First Give programme was held on Thursday 29th at 5pm at Alec Reed Academy, which involved 21 Year 8 pupils competing for cash prizes for their chosen charities. The First Give programme runs across the UK. It encourages pupils to take part in community action.
Our pupils worked in groups and chose a social issue that concerned them including poverty, homelessness and dementia. They then created a 5 minute presentation which included poetry, drama and role play. The standard of all the presentations was very good and there was a great atmosphere in the theatre with lots of parents and students supporting.
The winning groups were:
- Daria, Sarah and Abida, who won £1000 for Homestart Ealing
- Enya, Maggie and Chloe, who won £250 for We Are Trinity
- Harry, Karishan and Alex, who won £250 for Arts For Dementia
