The contest, launched in October last year, lasted 16 weeks and saw Year 10 teams from Alder Grange, All Saints, Fearns, Whitworth High, Haslingden High and Tor View schools, all come up with enterprising initiatives to generate as much income as possible to be donated to the hospice.
The ‘Celebration Event’ took place at Alder Grange School, where all the teams presented their results to the panel of judges. They were judged on 7 award categories; Most Profit Raised, Most Money Raised Per Pupil, Most Innovative Idea, Greatest Community Involvement, Best Presentation and Reporting, Special Recognition Award, and the Fundraisers Praise Award.
