It was all fun and games at Treviglad Community College recently as they held a day of charity to raise funds for an air ambulance service.
Tolcarne House organised the day, which included a transformation of the main hall into a mock fairground with numerous games to play and snacks available to buy.
Both staff and students alike kept in with the theme of the day “Where’s Wheller?” by wearing white and blue stripes. Paul Wheeler, the head of Tolcarne, played the part of Wally.
As well as feasting on sweets, cookies and cakes, staff and students took part in the fun. There were numerous booths with such activities as a nail bar and face-painting. One of the more popular booths saw students attempting to eat a donut in a faster time than Luke Mosely, a student from Year 11. No-one managed it.
By the time the day had come to an end, Treviglas raised over £1,000 in aid of the air ambulance charity, which took the total to over £5,500 when funds from past charity days were taken into account.
Mr Wheeler saw the day as a huge success and was pleased that the air ambulance benefited from a day which saw fun had by all who took part.
“It is inspiring when the whole college can come together to support this worthy cause. It’s thrilling to see students and staff in such great spirits on a fun day that goes to raise funds for such a valuable asset to the county.”
