BUSINESS, Administration and Finance diploma students at Bridlington School created a ‘Market Street’ event for charity.

The students have been busy for six weeks preparing for the event which forms a part of their diploma course.

Students had to form a team and plan, organise and run a major event. The ‘Market Street’ included bun and cake stalls, a guess the teddy bear’s name stand, a tombola, sponsored leg wax for brave male staff, and a raffle.

Sharon Oakley and Carl Jones from the British Heart Foundation were also there to show support.

Local businesses such as Boots, Broadacres, Manor Court, Marks and Spencers and Eastfield Garden Centre donated prizes for the raffle and members of school staff and their families also generously donated.

£301.26 was raised and will be divided equally between the British Heart Foundation and Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, with the students still expecting a further £60 in sponsorship.

Diploma students Steffanie McGurk, Joey Lawrie, Kim Jackson, Nicola Gibbons and Katie-Leigh Riley, said:

“We were very excited about the event, which was a fun and cheerful ending to a two year course, which all the students have enjoyed and had huge success in.

“Mrs Jamieson, our BAF teacher supported us but we learned quickly to work as a team and meet challenges head on – skills that will help us in sixth form and at University.”
