Fundraisers honour popular teacher Kevin
Last updated at 15:00, Thursday, 23 January 2014
A DAY of fundraising has been held at St Benedict’s School to remember much-loved teacher Kevin Green.
The ‘Green Day’ featured a balloon release – carrying poignant messages from pupils – and a raffle, which all combined to raise £1,771 in memory of the popular geography teacher and head of sixth form, who died of a heart attack last August aged 56.
Pupils also wore green, as well as the red of Mr Green’s beloved Liverpool FC.
Organised by the Sixth Form Council, the money raised was split between the British Heart Foundation and Meningitis Now, a charity Mr Green supported throughout his life.
The school council extended thanks to students, staff and parents who supported the event – and to Morrisons and Tesco for donations to the raffle.
