Record-breaking fundraising for Comic ReliefPosted on: 26/03/2019
New SBS record for charity fundraising
Staff and students enjoyed a week of fundraising for Comic Relief in the lead up to Red Nose Day on Friday 15th March 2019. Events included a movie and pizza night, staff v student penalty shoot out, science demonstrations (most of which involved explosions!), non-uniform day, the famous St Birinus Bake Off and last - but by no means least - a school favourite… the cake sale!
Thank you to everyone who participated, in whatever way. We managed to raise a fantastic total of £1251.68.
Huge congratulations to all our talented bakers who entered the bake-off. The standard was deliciously high (not a soggy bottom in sight) and we were truly amazed with every-single entry!
It was a hard decision and required a considerable amount of sampling, but Mr Marston, our catering manager Mrs Andrews and I finally decided who should receive the prestigious award of Star Baker.

Money donated to Comic Relief helps to support vulnerable people and communities in the UK and internationally.
The money raised by staff and students will support causes that:
- Fight for gender equality
- Promote positive mental health
- Provide safe places to live
- Help children to survive and thrive
A particular thank you to Mrs Ward who oversaw the entire fundraising week.
