Lower Sixth pupil raises over £10,000 for Haileybury Youth Trust
Lower Sixth pupil, Krishnav, has raised an amazing £10,828 for Haileybury Youth Trust (HYT) through the sale of House branded clothing.
As soon as he heard about the wonderful work undertaken by HYT, Krishnav knew he wanted to get involved and he began looking for ways to raise funds for the charity. Knowing how important Boarding Houses are to Haileybury, Krishnav quickly hit upon the idea that pupils would enjoy wearing clothing branded with their own House logos.
Krishnav decided he would produce two items of clothing, a hoodie and joggers, for each of the Houses. He then single-handedly managed the whole process from design to sourcing a factory that could produce the garments. Finally, in October, Krishnav launched the sale of the House clothing in Assembly, displayed posters around the School, emailed an order form to all pupils and processed all the resulting orders.
“This project began as just a fleeting idea and it has been a wonderful experience to witness the past few months of work become a reality. I would like to thank all of you who have supported this initiative. Together we have made a difference to the lives of refugees in need.” – Krishnav, Lower Sixth
HYT is an award-winning charity that trains young people in climate-friendly construction and builds schools, homes and water tanks.
Krishnav’s hard work and fundraising will help some of Africa’s most marginalised people.
