The Big Chocolate Tea

The Academy are really pleased to announce that moving forward the Sick Children's Trust is Northern Education Trust's chosen charity. The Sick Children's Trust is a national charity in the United Kingdom, founded in 1982, providing 'Home from Home' accommodation at hospitals around the United Kingdom. The charity supports families across the country who are unfortunate enough to have a sick child within the family. The charity seeks to provide support for the family by providing accommodation so suffering children can recover with those they need the most by their side. The Sick Children's Trust believes keeping families together significantly improves the recovery of seriously ill children and keep the needs of the family at the heart of everything they implement.

We are holding two events to raise money for The Big Chocolate Tea.

Firstly, we are asking staff and students to bring in a donation of chocolate to go into a chocolate hamper for raffle. This will be given out on the last day of term. See our picture for just today's Academy donations!

We will also be screening a special showing of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Thursday 18th July 2019 and inviting students to purchase a ticket for £2 which will cover the cost of admission and a grab bag of popcorn, juice and chocolate buttons.
