The Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge Team Elite from St Albans Girls’ School STAGS (the team the Club is Dragon to), have got their fundraising off to a great start for Rennie Grove Hospice raising nearly £250 already. They held a fashion show, and also sold amusingly packaged sweets at the school Christmas Fair. Scroll through the images in the slideshow below and you will see two of the girls modelling, plus a brave teacher Mrs Glanvill and Soroptimist Dragon Jane Slatter – and some sample packets of sweets.
In November, Team Elite from the St Albans Dragons‘ Apprentice Challenge were awarded an invitation to the launch of Fair Life Charity in Portcullis House Westminster with a visit to Parliament – with Soroptimist “Dragon” Jennie Redford (pictured centre). Dragons Apprentice Challenge were awarded a certificate for their work with students in local schools. The other team there was from Oaklands College. The Fairlife Charity raises standards in finance with a fair trading mark and promotes financial education in schools starting as early as Junior school. The guide made the visit great fun and was very good on the part about the Suffragettes – making a point of talking to Team Elite about them.
St Albans Soroptimists Jennie Redford and Jane Slatter are being “Dragons” to our Apprentices “Team Elite” from St Albans Girls’ School (STAGS) in the St Albans “Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge” – the challenge is for them to raise £1000 for the charity they’ve been partnered with – which is Rennie Grove Hospice – please see the Club News item: www.sigbi.org/st-albans/2016/dragon/
