Ingleton House hosts Chinese New Year-themed fundraiser.
Today, we piggybacked Chinese New Year (celebrated last Saturday) for the second of Thornton College’s trio of fundraisers spread across the school year.
Ingleton House staff and students asked their peers to dress in the Chinese colours of red or gold for a donation or to come to school as a New Year animal – be it a rat, monkey, dragon, snake or pig.
At Little Break, everyone had the opportunity to buy Fortune Cookies, plus homemade cakes and drinks, while we also raffled goodies such as a cake and a meal for four in a Chinese restaurant. All proceeds from the day will go to Thames Valley Air Ambulance, the school’s chosen charity this year.
