A group of young fundraisers from Oswestry School have set their sights on raising funds for two local charities, by holding a unique film and street food event at the school.
The event will feature a selection of street food made by OsNosh, a screening of “i, Daniel Blake”, followed by a Q & A session with speakers from OsNosh and Oswestry Food Bank. All funds raised on the evening will be shared between both charities.
Oswestry School pupils Meg, Harry, Ferdinand and Katja decided to organise the event after watching the film “i, Daniel Blake” during a class outing. This powerful film about poverty in modern day Britain made an impression on all four pupils. They said they were moved by the film and felt inspired to make a positive difference in their community by raising funds for Oswestry Food Bank and OsNosh.
The pupils who are members of the school’s Community Action group have been involved in various volunteering projects in Oswestry but have never organised a fundraising event before and are keen to make this a success.
“We really want as many people as possible to attend this event and help us to raise money for two really important charities in Oswestry,” said Meg and Katja.
Harry said: “We wanted others to see the film and be inspired to help others, like we were inspired”.
Ferdinand added that he had no idea about these issues and wanted to bring this to the attention of others.
The event takes place at the Peter Humphreys centre in Oswestry School on Wednesday, November 22. Doors open at 6pm; food will be served from 6.30pm and the film screening begins at 7pm.
Tickets are £20 and available on-line:
