Our HHHO Fundraising Plans

Our chosen Charity of the Year is Help Harry Help Others. HHHO helps to fund vital research into finding a cure for cancer, gives grants to those of any age or type of cancer suffering from financial hardship and has a cancer support drop-in centre in Birmingham.  So, to raise a little bit of money to help HHHO we have decided to put on fundraisers within our teams. 

Here's what each team are doing to raise funds:

Challenge 21+1

Elisha, Kelly, Adam, Katy, Nicola and Ellie will be taking inspiration from HHHO's 21+1 initiative, completing 22 challenges over the next few weeks. Some of these include doing karaoke for 22 minutes, sharing 22 reasons Harry inspires them and a 22-minute plank. 

Their Just Giving page can be found here:

Easter hamper

Our secondary and Sen teams, made up of Liv, Stella and Kirsty, held a raffle with a family Easter basket that included prosecco, chocolate and facemasks for some Easter relaxation and an egg decorating kit to entertain the kids. At only £2 per ticket, the lucky winner, Lorna H, was announced on the last day of the term.

If you didn’t have time to buy a ticket you can still donate on their Just Giving page:

Our climbers

Our finance and admin team, which includes Satpreet, Mark, Louise, Nasriin, Amber and Janisha, plan to climb a staggering 26,000 steps by July. This equates to the following famous landmarks: 

S = Statue of Liberty (354 steps)

M = Mont Blanc ( 24,035 steps)

I = Individual Personal Records 

L = Leaning Tower of Pisa (251 steps)

E = Empire State Building (1860 steps)

Give them some motivation by donating through their just giving page:

Doggie steps

Our Black country team, Hannah, Chelsea, Emma Sheldon, Emma Mcdermott and Bethan, will be taking part in a sponsored dog walk to raise money for HHHO.
