‘Habitat for Humanity’ Fundraising Initiative

Congratulations to a number of Grosvenor pupils who recently achieved their target of raising £1250 for ‘Habitat for Humanity’.

The ten Lower 6th pupils in question have run a number of fundraising initiatives over the past couple of months, such as a tuck shop at the School Drama Production, a charity collection throughout the School – promoted at each of the weekly Year Assemblies, a non-uniform day and a ‘Guess the number of Sweets in the Jar’ competition.

The pupils also spent two days working alongside ten of their peers from ‘Our Lady and St. Patrick’s College’, as well as a further ‘Site Day’ visit where they worked to refurbish small units on a housing estate in Lisburn.

‘Habitat for Humanity’ is an international, non-governmental, and non-profit organization which was founded in 1976, since when it has been devoted to building affordable housing across the world. Since its inception it is estimated that it has helped construct, rehabilitate or preserve homes of over four million people.

Well done to each of Grosvenor’s pupils, as well as teacher Mrs Fiona Browne who oversaw the fundraising initiative, on their impressive achievement. The School looks forward to further fundraising events throughout the remainder of the year.
