After the success of our last Sweet Exchange we decided to do it all again to raise more money for our chosen charities (and eat lots of cake!!)!
We encouraged all of our students and staff to bake or buy something sweet to bring in and share!
Everyone had to donate a minimum of $1 and could then help themselves to as many sweet delights as they could eat!
The money raised will be given to two charities myself and Lisa are very passionate about; WIRES Wildlife Rescue and Golden Oldies Animal Rescue. I am a rescuer/volunteer for WIRES and Lisa has adopted two elderly dogs and an 8 year old cat from rescue groups like Golden Oldies. We each did a presentation for our chosen charities to explain all the great things they do and how everyone’s donations would help.
We had a fantastic selection of homemade cakes and shop bought biscuits, chocolates and doughnuts!
I’m so proud to work for a school where we have such caring and generous students and staff who were happy to get involved for a brilliant cause! Everyone’s contributions and donations were greatly appreciated and we can’t wait to let the charities know how much Lexis has raised for them…
a total of $272.25!!
With $146.25 going to Golden Oldies and $126 going to WIRES.
