On Friday 29th September 2017, every student and staff member at The Axholme Academy took part in a 5 mile sponsored walk. This is an annual event that the school organises to raise money for the Academy School Fund. This fund is aimed at supporting educational trips and events for the students; therefore the money raised goes straight towards their own educational experiences.
The walk takes the students around different parts of Crowle, including along the canal-side and through the village. Most of the school took the walk at a good steady pace and spirits remained high despite the wet weather! Most students completed the walk within 2 hours and returned to be treated to a hot drink and cake at our annual MacMillan Coffee Morning.
There were some great fundraising efforts made by some students including Jessica Gibson (Year 7) who raised £120 and Ellie Dean (Year 7) who raised £85.
All of the students thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the walk and have raised a magnificent £1324.20 so far and this will be used to support extra student activities.
