Students at The Priory Ruskin Academy were delighted to present Andy Maddison from The Grantham Passage with a cheque for £1003.40.

Raised by the Academy’s hugely successful Festive Evening which was held before Christmas, the money will be used by The Grantham Passage to help homeless and vulnerable people, providing them with hot food, clothing and assistance to access relevant agencies and community support.

Vicki Geeson, Charity Coordinator at the Academy, said: “The Festive Evening is an incredibly popular event at The Priory Ruskin Academy and brings together all elements of our local community. I am so grateful to everyone for their support and so pleased we raised such a great amount of money for a wonderful charity. The support from local businesses in particular is appreciated by all.”
