Students at ACG Strathallan are gearing up for their inaugural Charity Gala Day on Saturday 25 November.
A committee of students is helping to drive the gala, which will bring together ACG Strathallan families and the local community to raise money for four local grassroots charities: High Wire Charitable Trust, Franklin Silver Lining Trust, Summerfields Charitable Trust and Angels Light Breakfast.
Students Nathan Winspear and Jacob Fraser in Year 13 said the charities selected were all about supporting local people in need.
“Helping other families and the youth of today is something we strongly stand for. It teaches a valuable lesson about sharing and helps our students build an understanding of others within the community who are less privileged and be grateful for everything that they have.”
There will be around 50 independent stalls at the gala, including Tombola, lucky dips, gift baskets, fun rides, raffles and food carts.
Year 9 and 10 students have volunteered to be in charge of activities, with part of their mission to bring at least five friends each to the gala. They’re also wrapping lucky dips, making props for activities and encouraging other students to bring in donations.
Everyone is welcome to attend the Charity Gala Day, on Saturday 25 November, from 10am onwards. All proceeds to four local charities.
