Cash4Coins… We’re still collecting

Thank you to all those who have already donated unwanted foreign currency, we’ve managed to collect our first 5kg!

The collection bucket is still in school reception, waiting for anything you may have left over from holidays or lurking in drawers or down the back of the sofa, so please keep sending in your donations.

Thank you again for your support.

Thank you to all our helpers this year.

As this academic year enters its final half term, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, especially all those parents and other family members who have helped us serve refreshments, sell raffle tickets and run stalls at the Christmas Fayre. With your help we have been able to raise over £9000, which has been spent on a number of projects in school.

For more details, see ‘Projects’.

Cash4coins collection

Here at The North Halifax Grammar School we are busy fundraising by collecting old British or foreign coins and notes, even obsolete currency. Initially you’ll see lots of posters around the school as well as the collection bucket. Once all the currency has been collected we will send it to who exchanges it into cash we can use. The bucket will be here all year so keep it coming please.
