The Malagiri School


March 2013 – More exciting fundraising events

During Semester 1 2012-13 there was much activity in fund raising for the School in Malagiri and I am incredibly grateful to all students and staff for their generosity.
Adam Byford, a member of the admin team, raised £337 by running the Firle 10k trail. This is an area I know well and the Downs are mighty steep here so well done and thanks to Adam!

Following on from Adam’s success, Lorraine Harrison, Head of the School of Education, blog16_marathonher husband George, daughter Sarah and PA Jess Hamlin ran in the Brighton 10km event. After much dedicated training the team completed the run and raised a staggering £1173 – thanks so much to you all.

Students who visit Nepal for their Complementary Placements each donate £100 to the funds and so this raised £1300.

Pam Blackman and Ian Longman both requested that any donations to their ‘leaving gift’ should be given to Malagiri – an incredibly generous gesture – thanks Pam and Ian.

In November Jo Blake and Susie Negus organised a book sale and raised the impressive sum of £152. I am very grateful to Jo and Susie for organsing book sales on a regular basis – a great way to recycle books and raise money at the same time.

In the run up to Christmas, staff member Deb Price raised £150 by holding a clothes swop; student Natasha Gonsalves’ daughter, Lydia, held a cake stall at her school and the children at Bramber First School in Worthing raised £170 from their Christmas Show.

Student Jade Kelly made £100 from selling delicious cakes and Millie McGill Clayden contributed £260 by organising a fantastic Christmas Fair.
My son, Peter, works at Toyota headquarters in Epsom and the staff there raised approximately £2,000 by donating the proceeds of the Christmas raffle to the Malagiri fund.

After Christmas, Year 1 students organised a super sports event at the Falmer Sports Hall and this raised £325. Thanks to Rachel Webb-Peploe for coordinating the event and to Caroline Ward who did such a great job baking and selling cakes.
That’s not all folks. Keep your diaries free for the evening of Friday 22nd March when there is a gig to raise funds at the Brunswick in Hove. This event will consist of bands consisting of School of Education staff. This will be great – more details shortly.

So what great colleagues and students we have in the School of Education. All I can say on behalf of me, the staff and children at Malagiri is a huge thank you. Your generosity is incredible and you are amazing.
