Charity Rounders match at Winslow Combined School

Organised by Atlanta McCauley & Jade Soricelli


Atlanta & Jade are two students at Winslow Combined School who were preparing to leave at the end of July. They decided that they wanted to raise money for Alec’s Angels after being involved at the annual ‘It’s a knockout’ event in Winslow.

They approached their head teacher, Mr Simon Rose, of the idea of having a rounders match with the year 6 children who will be leaving and the staff of the school. This was given the go ahead, as it would also be a lovely memory of their time at the School.

It happened to be on the hottest day of the year, as temperatures soared to over 30 C. But everyone coped remarkably well, with the children playing their socks off and some fine individual performances. The teachers however put up a brave fight & gave great team spirit, even though the final score was 19 rounders to 23.5 to the children.

Lovely orange cakes which were made and donated by a parent of one of the year 6 children & drinks of squash were sold and helped to raise £76.44.

A massive well done to Atlanta & Jade as the Head announced that there will now be a cup to play for every year to make this an annual event for the School.  I think the staff may well be practising at every opportunity!
