As part of the BTEC Sport Level 3 course, ten Sixth Form students set themselves the challenge of organising a 24-hour football match to raise money for local charity Julia’s House. Following much hard work, the 56 students who signed up to take part kicked off at 2.00pm on Thursday, 22 November, with support from two AFC Bournemouth players, including former Lytchett Minster student Kyle Taylor. The students were very grateful to Tesco for sponsoring the event and providing them with much-needed food during the gruelling 24 hours.
During the last hour, Sarah Agnew from Julia’s House came to meet with and thank the students, who have collectively raised an amazing £2,251.50. Congratulations to all the students who took part, the parents who delivered food and supported throughout the event, to the staff who gave up their time to supervise, and particularly to the ten students who worked so hard to make the event such a success: Olly Mulhern, Joe O’Brien, Jordan Wayman, Luke McKenzie, Ethan Goudie, Josh Exley-More, Mitchell Pike, Matthew Pritchard, Evan Jones and Liam Ballard.
