Our Charity

How our meetings ran:

On average, we met with our Charity and Dragon every three weeks, increasing to every week as deadlines approached. Each meeting followed a consistent process: the day before our meeting, our team would meet to outline discussion points and create a checklist which would be mentioned in our meeting. During the meeting, we updated our Dragon and Charity on recent achievements and challenges, seeking their input for problem-solving. Together, we brainstormed ideas and strategized for the best outcomes. Finally, we concluded by planning our next steps, scheduling the next meeting, and outlining agenda items.

Overall total

During the course of our challenge, we hosted three bake sales. These events served as crucial moments for us, aiming to boost our funds for future events. We sold both store-bought treats like Fanta, Coke, and fizzy lollies alongside homemade delights such as cookies, cupcakes, and brownies. With careful budgeting and promotion, we attracted a constant flow of customers and received edible donations, effectively minimizing our expenses. The outcome exceeded our expectations, as our first bake sale generated a total revenue of £270, with an impressive profit of £184.

Bake sales

Initially, we faced a setback in securing a stall at the Christmas festival due to a need of public liability insurance. However, through collaboration with the Tring Youth Council, we found a solution and successfully operated a stall at the Tring Christmas Lights event, alongside the council on their stall. Our total expenditure on this event was £118 which encompassed, hot chocolate and Mulled apple juice as our two primary beverages, alongside baked and store-bought goods available for purchase, for example: cupcakes, cookies, brownies. The result exceeded our initial prediction, generating a profit of £256.80.

Tring Christmas Festival

Following the unexpected failure of the Battle of the Bands, our team came together to prepare for our largest event, the Quiz Night. We had to get permission from our headteacher to use the dining room and sort out logistics with the site management team. To spread the word, we used the school's social media and put up posters around school with QR codes that went to the ticket page. Each of us prepared and hosted a quiz round on the night. We also had a raffle that raised over £200, served refreshments like cakes and hot drinks, and held a silent auction. In the end, our hard work paid off, and we made a total of £586.02.

Quiz Night

Back in October, the event was launched. 15 teams took part in the competition and all groups received a charity and a business to work with. Our team's business was B&M care, and the charity we were working with was the Pepper Foundation.
