Cans and Clothes for Katie

Katie Tippett in Year 11 has been selected from thousands of scouts to take part in the Scout Jamboree in Japan. She is collecting aluminium cans and old clothing to raise £3000 for her trip.

Please support her by bringing in your old cans - drop them off in Reception or bring them to any evening event (leave them with the Friends at the bar and they'll pass them on to her). Old clothing and shoes can be placed in the bucket in Reception. Thank you.
