On Saturday 1st July, Pool Hayes dancers represented the School performing at a community event organised by Ellen Knowles to raise money for St Giles Hospice a charity that relies heavily on donations in order to provide the level of care required for those with severe cases of cancer.
The event took place at the Molineux Stadium where the GCSE, Btec students and Miss Williams performed an Irish dance in aid of the event and in memory of Miss Williams’ uncle Alf Knowles who sadly passed away in November last year.
Donations from the public, family and friends, Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Bromwich Albion and local cricket clubs are just a handful of people who sponsored the event and donated prizes for the raffle. The evening and a Trek Fest event raised a staggering £14,375 which will have a huge impact on the individuals at St Giles Hospice.
It is not the first time that the girls have supported such events, back in January 2015 the girls performed at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium to perform an assortment of dances as part of an Entertainment and Auction evening in aid of New Cross Hospital’s Snowdrop Millenium Suite where the girls helped to raise £4000
“The night was absolutely amazing and had impacted all the girls in such a positive way as they were so happy to be part of something so close to many people’s hearts. It was comforting to have them with me for such a personal occasion” Miss Williams
“I would like to thank the students for being a part of something very close to my family and to the parents for your support. I am overwhelmed with the amount of money raised but extremely happy to know that it will provide more comfort for the patients, families and staff at St Giles Hospice” Ellen Knowles (Organiser)
