Dragons Apprentice Team Raises Money For Hospice Of St Francis
On Saturday, 11 December 2021, a team from John F Kennedy School in Hemel Hempstead, participating in the Dragons Apprentice project, attended Hemel Hempstead Town’s home game against Slough Town and raised over £450 for the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted.
Dacorum [Hemel Hempstead] Council runs the Dragons Apprentice project. It involves teams of local schoolchildren being paired with a local charity and a business mentor with the objective of coming up with fundraising ideas to raise money for the local charity.
The JFK team mentored by Robert Males of Underwoods Solicitors ran a raffle at last Saturday’s Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club home game.
The first prize was two season tickets for next season, very generously donated by Dave Boggins, Chairman of Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club.
Robert Males of Underwoods Solicitors said:
“This was a great day; the team performed brilliantly, and it was great to see the supporters of Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club, and Slough Town, our opposition, giving so generously to the Hospice”.
The Dragons Apprentice team from JFK have also been running a tuckshop at the school, which has already raised nearly £1,000, and they have further ideas for fundraising in the New Year.
