Congleton Carnival Cheque Helps CHS Reach Shelter Target

Students and staff at Congleton High School were delighted to receive a cheque for £200 from the Congleton Carnival, which helped them to reach the £20,000 needed to build an outdoor learning and socialising space for the whole school to share. The money came from the £3,200 raised from bucket collections during the 2014 and 2016 Congleton Carnival parades.

The cheque was presented on Wednesday 16th May by the outgoing Mayor Councillor, Charles Booth, to CHS teacher, Mrs Eckersley, who had led the Student Shelter fundraising team and two members of the Student Leadership Team, Max and Alice Hill. Thirteen other local groups and charities were also able to benefit from the Carnival team's kind donations including Beartown Amateur Boxing, Congleton Friends for Leisure, LoL Foundation, Buglawton Scouts and Guides, Ruby's Fund, Congleton 230 Air Training Cadets and Royal National Lifeboat Institute. 

The Student Shelter is due to be constructed in the school's central 'Quad' area over the summer break and represents many years of dedicated fundraising by students, parents and staff through a whole range of activities and events. Along with the £200 from the Congleton Carnival, the school has also received very generous donations from Congleton Town Trust, Senior Aerospace Bird Bellows, Rotary Congleton, The William Dean Countryside and Educational Trust and The National Lottery Big Lottery Fund.
