We are hugely grateful to Harris Academy Merton for raising an incredible £4246.85 for our charity. On Monday 21st November, students and teachers came together to dodge, dribble and shoot at the academy’s annual ‘Clash of Faculties’ event, all in support of London’s Air Ambulance.

Over five days, students represented their faculties in daily dodgeball, netball and basketball competitions, fighting for the honour of winning the ‘Interfaculty Championship’ trophy. In the build-up to the big event, students went out into the local community and encouraged their friends, families and teachers to donate money to London’s Air Ambulance.

This year’s total of £4246.85 was a record for the Academy and we would like to thank everyone who took part and donated money. Each faculty raised over £900 and the week ended with the Red Faculty of Harris Academy Merton taking home the trophy.
