On Friday 14 November, staff and students raised £500 for the BBC's Children in Need appeal. The charity was chosen again this year by The Abbey School Student Council, and money collected mainly through a non-uniform day. However, other events, such as a cake sale, have also added to the total, and a final cheque will be sent off later this year.
The £500 raised so far was presented to Children in Need live on BBC 1 by The Abbey School's very own Minion. "We collect money every year for Children in Need", he said, "and this year I was very proud to be able to represent all the students and staff, as a way of thanking them for all their generous support, dedication and work to this worthy cause."
