Remembering Freddie

Year 10 pupils have been busy raising funds for the Owen McVeigh Foundation. This is a charity which helps support terminally-ill children.

They offered a lot of support to Freddie Williams and his family several years ago. Freddie (pictured with Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk) was a pupil in this year group who very sadly died in August 2019, from a type of bone cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma.

To remember Freddie and to support the Owen McVeigh foundation, pupils organised a raffle with fabulous prizes including two match tickets for Liverpool v Manchester United, a signed John Barnes picture, £20 Nandos voucher and lots more.

They also organised a penalty shoot-out for Year 10 and some Year 11, shooting against Mr Taylor and Mr Anderson. All prizes were donated from local businesses, including the Co-op and Sainsburys.

The event was organised by Luke, Ollie, Lewis and Matthew, all in Year 10. Prizes were generously donated by Mrs Gill, Mrs Dunbabin and Mrs Williams. A staggering £1600 was raised in Freddie’s memory.
