The Holgate Academy is inviting all staff and students to take part in fundraising for BBC Children in Need, a charity which does brilliant work for children throughout the UK, including here in Nottingham.

The main fundraising activity will be a non-uniform day on Friday 16th November 2017. We are asking for a contribution of just £1 towards the charity. You may, as a family, wish to donate to the charity through the Academy, so we will be having an extra donation point in student services – it is a perfect opportunity to raid ‘piggy banks’ in order to support a worthwhile cause. Any student preferring not to take part or donate is, of course, welcome to come in their full uniform, worn smartly.

In all other regards, it will be a normal school day; students will still need all the equipment they require for Friday’s learning. Our expectations for good behaviour and time-keeping will also still be as high as they would be for any other day. Students are not permitted to wear fancy dress items.

We appreciate your help in supporting Children in Need and we will publish our fundraising totals on the Academy website, once it has all be counted and transferred.

With thanks and best wishes
