Year 9 student Conor Judge is hoping to boost tomorrow’s mufti day fundraising efforts with his ‘Five Tie challenge’. Conor recently bought three of Mr Nicholls’s novelty ties in the recent auction and he already owns another two. He will wear a different tie and outfit for each of the five different periods at school and is hoping that students and staff will sponsor him.
He said: ‘After every period has ended with the teacher’s permission I will be changing ties and my clothes because each tie doesn’t go with each change of clothes. Anyone in school who really likes a joke and wants to support the charity can sponsor me, and my aim is to raise more than £75.’
Money raised from the mufti day and Conor's efforts, will go towards Mr Nicholls’s VSO project in the Sudan which he and his wife will embark on on his retirement from Brooke Weston at the end of this academic year. At assembly this morning Mr Nicholls announced that so far £875.12 had been raised from the tie auction with around a further £50 still pledged. Thanks to everyone who contributed and please give generously to the mufti day collection tomorrow.
