Initial activities

Since forming in October the PHHS Interact Club has been hot on the trail of fundraising and raising awareness of a wide variety of good causes.  We welcome members from across the school and our aim is to work together, to have fun together and to help others.

We have already enjoyed huge successes with a range of fundraisers for good causes that include Children in Need, The Hurricane Haiyan Appeal, Operation Christmas Child and MacMillan Cancer Support.  As a result of all this activity we have raised over £800 already!

To support this good will work our super team have been very busy and have so far baked over 30 cakes, painted numerous tablecloths, invented exciting new games, and have collected shoeboxes in time for Christmas.  We are currently collecting vegetables for our nominated local charity Caring Hands and look forward to seeing just how much of a contribution we can raise.

We want to continue organising fun events that will provide all students with the opportunity to support both charities and their local community during their time at school, and we are always looking to recruit potential new interactors.  Being an Interact Club means we work closely with the Rotary Club of Evesham and we have already been privileged to welcome the district Governor and Rotary Club International visitors at our meetings.  Being part of Rotary International ensures we can draw upon links with other Interact Clubs in other schools; both local and international and we look forward to building such links in the future.

As part of our inauguration we have chosen Caring Hands Evesham and Spinal Injury Research as our two main charity projects and we look forward to raising awareness of these two causes as we move through the school year.  Overall we are grateful to all the students who have come along to help the club for each event, and the staff and students who have joined in and made donations. Above all we are having lots of fun and look forward to making a positive contribution our community.
