Tuxford Academy’s Post 16 Charity Committee members have received recognition for raising thousands of pounds for a range of charities.

Charlotte Hancock, Olivia Hudson and Beth Brown were presented with a prestigious Diana Award on 15th December at the Post 16 Celebration of Achievement evening held at the academy.

The Diana Award, established in 1999 as a lasting legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales, celebrates young people who support others and strive to improve their communities.

Fundraising events organised by the girls ranged from raffles to non uniform days to bake sales.

Charities supported included Pink Day for Breast Cancer, Operation Christmas Child, The Fire Fighters Charity, Notts and Lincs Air Ambulance, The Smile Train and Changing Faces.

Paul Simpson Post 16 Strategy Leader said he was ‘extremely proud of the students involved’.
