Friends of GT Scholars – Have you heard about the Big Give Christmas Challenge?
Happy Friday! I hope that you’ve had a brilliant start to the day so far and that you are excited for the weekend! We’ve got a few things lined up in this week’s newsletter that we’d like to share with you, including more information on a fundraising challenge we’re taking on.
The Big Give Challenge
The Big Give Challenge is an annual campaign used to raise money for charities like ours! This year, we’re raising money for the Raising Aspirations Programme for looked after children and we would really appreciate your support by either pledging a donation before August or giving a donation after August when our Big Give page is launched! Pledges will be used to double donations once the page goes live! Pledges are secured by completing this form and you can find out more about the challenge here.
Are you an SEO expert?
We are looking for someone who’s SEO savvy to help us to optimise our search engine ranking. In this volunteer role, you’ll need to work with our comms & impact manager, Kelen and lead a project to help us increase our google page ranking. If this volunteer opportunity sounds like the right fit for you, then please let me know by replying this email or fill out this volunteer skills survey if you’d like to offer other specialist skills!
Interview with a parent
A couple of week’s ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing a parent who’s daughter just finished her first term at GT Scholars. The scholar benefited tremendously from the online tutoring, so much that she’s moved up a whole set in Maths and is now one of the top two students in her class. It’s always great to receive positive feedback like this and to know that we were able to make a difference. You can follow this link to read the full interview.
Have a super weekend!
