Pitching In

The 9th of February was North Devon Hospice's Pitch in a Pound day and Route 39 joined in with hundreds of other local groups and organisations to raise money for this local charity for people affected by life limiting illnesses.
As always the students came up with the ideas and the goods as they tackled making penny chains as a house competition, a cake sale and car washing.  Each house managed to make a chain of over 68 metres which raised almost £45 alone.
The car wash, which is always a staff favourite, raised over £42 as the students applied soap suds and elbow grease to tackle the ravages of the winter country roads.  The cake sale raised over £90 which reveals a lot about both staff and students!
In all, with donations for non uniform as well, our students raised almost £310, which is a huge total for our little school.  Well done to all involved for all your hard work (eating cake).
