Sporting prizes in raffle for brain tumour charity

In aid of Brain Tumour research Society, Tom Marton in Year 10 decided to organise a whole school raffle with some amazing sporting prizes! First prize was a John Terry shirt worn in a Belgium/England friendly and then signed by both Roy Hodgson, England Manager, and Ray Lewington, assistant coach. Second and third prizes were signed rugby league balls from both Hull FC and Hull KR. Other prizes included signed Hull City players photos. Tom J in year8 won the England shirt and Mr Gosling, coming second, chose the signed Hull KR ball. Bradley Pugh in year7 won the Hull FC ball. Tom Ashton in year10 chose the signed Hull City photos and Mr Goodwin won a set of Cardiff City signed pictures!

Tom underwent an operation to remove a brain tumour in February 2012 and has been recovering well ever since. He has been back at school full time since September 2012, full of life and energy. He undertook a series of assemblies to raise awareness of BTRS and also organised a whole school event on 19th April. Wear a hat day encouraged all staff and students to wear a hat for the day and make a donation to the charity.

Together, the hat day and raffle raised over £730 for Brain Tumour Research – a fabulous amount that will go a little way towards such a worthwhile cause!
