Students from Joseph House at St Columba’s College held a wonderful bake off to raise money for Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope on the 22nd of May. The bake off was organised by the Head of House Joe Tatham and it brought together students and parents for a fun and cheerful day. Participants made diverse and innovative cakes, including one inspired by the Chelsea Flower Show, and school staff acted as judges and rewarded the best cakes with prizes.
Following the competition, the cakes were sold and by the end of the day the students had managed to raise more than £100 for Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope. This is a wonderful contribution which is enough to provide a child in Sierra Leone with a prosthetic limb and physiotherapy!
We are also very grateful that Joseph House has chosen to support Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope for the rest of the year. In April, Sarah Hope, co-founder of ELoH, and Isabelle Trick from ELoH came and gave a talk for the students and teachers of the house, and throughout the year the students and staff will continue to raise money for child amputees in Africa. Thank you so much everyone from Joseph House – we are looking forward to the next fundraising event!
