Year 10 Nathan has donated his time and skills to supporting an event at his local library and raising funds for the school’s chosen charity- The Ashley Foundation

 

Nathan took part in a book folding activity for Freckleton Library as part of a wider craft event. The books will be for a variety of things such as community displays. In addition to this, at the same event, Nathan also baked some shortbread Christmas trees and asked for donations to help the homeless charity that school are supporting– The Ashley Foundation. He raised £29.88

 

Everyone had fun at the event and many people hadn’t realised what paper folding was all about and how many amazing things you can create. Nathan wore his school uniform to the event and discussed his art studies with visitors. Nathan said: “I really enjoyed sharing the book making with others and doing something good for the local community. As a result of this event I am now going to work with the library to create quarterly events aimed at encouraging people my age to use their local library.”

 

Headteacher Mr Waller said: “It was a pleasure to hear about the contribution Nathan has made and will continue to make to his and the school’s local community. It is young people like Nathan who are making a real difference by generously giving their time and skills for others. Well done Nathan.”
