HAM AND PETERSHAM WI CENTENARY TEA PARTY RAISES FUNDS FOR stem4

  • On a sunny day in April the ladies of Ham and Petersham WI threw a party at the Petersham village hall.Entry was by ticket for members and their guests only and the aim was to raise funds both for stem4 and SPEAR( a Richmond based charity for the homeless).The tea party was a huge success with 58 guests attending.
  • I am delighted to say that 48 of the guests were fortunate enough to win lucky ticket prizes as well as enjoying a lovely tea party.
  • As the ladies of the WI very generously covered all the costs of the event themselves this has meant funds raised exceeded £750 to be split between SPEAR and stem4. We are so grateful to Ham and Petersham WI for considering us in their fundraising and congratulate them on the success of their event.

LOOM BRACELETS

  • Students at Wymondham High Academy sold loom bracelets to raise funds for stem4.
    Thank you to Sally Johnson and her fantastic team for supporting stem4 and if anyone would like to order 10 or more bracelets please email us.

RAISING FUNDS IN THE SKY

  • Many congratulations and thanks go to Saffron Abrahams who has took to the skies last Saturday to raise over £775 for stem4.
  • Saffie decided to waive a 16th birthday present from her parents to raise money for charity instead via a skydive .
    We should like to thank Saffie for her bravery and selflessness in making this choice.
  • She describes the event as terrifying and wonderful at the same time .. freezing at the moment the door opened then smiling as she descended through the clouds.Saffie has been a hugely enthusiastic and successful supporter of stem4 having also raised funds for the charity via her schools’s “tenner challenge” some months ago.
  • WELL DONE and THANK YOU SAFFIE!!!!

STEM4 School Nurses Conference

  • The STEM4 school nurses conference held on Monday the 23rd February was very positively received. The morning covered the topic of self-harm together with an introduction to the new STEM4 Calm-Harm app and the afternoon was on Eating Disorders – an apt topic since the 23rd February marked the start of Eating Disorders Awareness week. Dr Krause spoke on the clinical issues whilst Patsy Preece spoke about teacher’s issues and school policy.
  • ‘An excellent day’; ‘Useful, practical and inspiring’ were some of the comments.

Well Done and Thank you to the team from Queen Elizabeth’s girls school!!

  • Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’ School was selected recently to participate in an event called “Tenner Relay”. The team was given  £10 by the school and asked to make as much profit as they could in 24 hours  and that profit would then be given to charity. STEM4 were delighted to be selected as their chosen charity. This is what happened in their own words;
  • “To make our profit we decided to do an ‘around the world diner’. We bought French pastries for breakfast and with that profit American  doughnuts for break and then with breaks’ profit  bought Italian pizza for lunch.
  • 11M gave up their free time to sell as much food as possible in order to make as much profit as we could in the short time we were allowed. We made £155 from the £10 we were provided with. We chose STEM4 because one pupil ( Saffron Abrahams) in the class is doing a skydive for them and we want to support them as much as possible.”
  • Thank you 11M and all the students who supported their endeavour buy buying their goods. We are so fortunate to have such enterprising young supporters.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO HIGHAM LANE SCHOOL ( Nuneaton)

  • A massive thank you to Head Girl, HIBA AJAZ and Head Boy, JOE KRAUTH of Higham Lane School who together with assistant Head girl Sophie Rowley (leader of the charities group in their student body ; ‘STUDENT VOICE’ ) and the ‘JUNIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM’ organised a NON-UNIFORM day at Higham Lane School, Nuneaton, Warwickshire in aid of STEM4 . This was a massive undertaking and though organised immediately before mock exams when everyone was under pressure was a spectacular success. During the course of the day they promoted the charity sold cakes, handed out leaflets, pins and bracelets and asked all students for a donation in exchange for being allowed to come to school without wearing a uniform. The day was a resounding success raising £1374 which will enable STEM4 to run a conference and a workshop. We are immensely grateful to Hiba,Joe,Sophie and the teams of helpers for all their hard work and effort.

News from Roundwood School

  • Thank you once more to Roundwood school  who have been fundraising madly to support STEM4 and Teenage Cancer Trust.
  • Before Christmas the school held a charity week during which each year group ran events every day such as cake sales, cinema clubs, a dance-athon, and even a sponsored blindfolded. In addition they ran a Christmas market and  grotto and held “a dress up “day. During the course of that period they raised over £1200 to be split between STEM4 and Teenage Cancer Trust. This is a fantastic achievement and they have told us that there is more to come in terms of both raising awareness and funds to include;
  • A jumbo Jigsaw of a mix of images/info and quotes from STEM4 and Teenage Cancer Trust that will cover the entire floor in the drama studio and  a pub quiz created by one of the sixth formers . In addition Mike Garbutt, head of Drama is undertaking a personal sponsored challenge  to go on Europe’s longest zip line in Wales at Easter. With the concept of personal challenges in mind the school has also dared each form group to come up with their own sponsored challenge activity which puts them out of their comfort zone in order to raise funds and awareness.Look out for the sponsored link on this page in due course;
  • We are hugley indebted to Roundwood School for the tremendous efforts made by both students and staff to support STEM4.

Eva expressed on her fundraising page that she feels keenly that “teenagers are the next generation and need all the help they can get in this fast changing world”, a view very much shared by STEM4.
