The Alzheimer's Society
On the 26th of January 2018, Kate and Sophie, two pupils in Year 10 from Thetford Grammar School, held an event in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.
This was mainly because Kate’s Grandad was diagnosed with the disease and Kate wanted to do all she could to help. Sophie also kindly agreed to help and they set off planning their event.
In the morning of their event they had an assembly taken by Sue, a volunteer who kindly came in and spoke to the whole school about the charity. Then at break and lunch Kate and Sophie lead a cake sale where they raised £150. Later, they had a parent’s event to showcase the art they had made with junior school and it was a great success.
From the whole event they managed to raise £400 but Kate’s Dad added Gift Aid which boosted it to £500.

On Saturday, pupils, students, staff, pets and parents joined together and formed a Thetford Grammar School sponsored run team to raise awareness of and funds for our Twin School Hamar Jajab in Mogadishu Somalia. Last year, we were able to raise funds to equip the school with laboratory equipment. You may have read of this news in our recent newsletters.
