Hatch End High School students win money for Blenheim
On the 19th July students from Hatch End High School in Harrow took part in the First Give final to win £250 for Blenheim’s service, Arch.
The students gave a five minute presentation about the charity and the impact Blenheim make for the individuals and local communities in Hillingdon. They were marked by the judging panel on their knowledge, creativity and delivery and in the end came a fantastic third place.
Kelly Mitchell, Arch Outreach Worker, said:
“We were delighted that the students chose to support Blenheim and were really impressed with their presentation and research. The competition was really tough and although they didn’t win the first prize of £1000, coming in the top three is a fantastic achievement.
“The money that the students won for Arch will go to supporting local people with their recovery journeys.”
Kelly Mitchell and Samantha Rowe, both Outreach Workers at Arch attended the event to support the students with their presentations.
First Give work in partnership with secondary schools to help young people to give their time, tenacity and talents to improve their local communities.
