Students at Bruton School for Girls joined together with local hockey teams, friends and family to play a ‘hockathon’ - 12 hours of continuous hockey - to raise money for The Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity which is currently supporting a member of the BSG school community.
Impressive organisation from Izzy N, a member of Year 11, saw the entire school get involved in what proved to be a very successful fundraiser. Around £700 was raised from sponsorship, cake sales and donations. Throughout the day teams from Pre-School to the Sixth Form played, and a staff team made a special guest appearance! In the evening members of the local community from both Bruton and Buckhorn Western Hockey Clubs turned out to play and enjoy a BBQ and music.
Hannah Cowper, Director of Sport, commented: “I am hugely proud of the girls who organised this event, it was yet another example of what makes BSG special. Our whole community working together for such an important cause, despite the aching legs the day after it was great fun and proves how powerful sport can be.”
The Teenage Cancer Trust creates world-class cancer services for young people in the UK, providing life-changing care and support so young people don’t have to face cancer alone.
