The judges and audience were treated to a great in-school competition at St Ninian’s High School last night, with teams representing Friends of Pestalozzi, Developing Orphans (Do!) and East African Playgrounds all taking part. Each team gave a presentation about the great work carried out by their charities. The winning team, who gave a very inventive and original presentation, were the team representing Do!. They will go through to the inter-school final to be held at the Mountain View Innovation Centre on 21st March, where they will compete with teams from around the island for awards for their charity of up to £3,000, the Frances Davidson Cup, the AFD Award for Advocacy and the audience prize sponsored by the Scott Trust. The other two teams were awarded £200 each for their charities. Grant funding has been made available by sponsorship from AFD Software Ltd. of Ramsey.
Well done to all involved!
Helen, Project Officer
