Congratulations to the Student Council who organised fundraising events and sponsorship to support the World Vision 40-Hour Famine to the tune of $2304.
Each year the BSSC Student Council selects a number of charities to support. Student interest in contributing to the reduction of global hunger has meant the 40-Hour Famine has been a regular feature on their events calendar.
Student Councillors would like to thank the college community for assisting their fundraising by supporting their lunchtime sausage sizzles, Biggest Morning tea, and Star Cinema screening of Jungle Book.
Funds raised at the movie night added substantially to the good work already done for the World Vision 40-Hour Famine with a combination of a raffle, silent auction, donations and ticket sales.
“It was fantastic to see every couch in the Star Cinema full,” said Student Council Secretary Ashley Eadon. “We’re so grateful for the support of the college community in raising money for such an important cause.”
With the college support, our students have joined thousands of other people determined to make a difference in the lives of some of the world’s poorest people. The 40-Hour Famine, not only raises community awareness of global hunger, but supports World Vision projects in Malawi, Ethiopia, East Timor, Nepal, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda.
