As part of their National Citizen Service (NCS) project, three Year 12 students, Hamza, Haris and Shazaib, held a fundraising event to raise money for the ‘Rucksack Project’, which helps homeless people by giving them a rucksack full of basic essentials.
Haris said, “NCS interested me because I wanted a challenge that would develop my social skills, improve my teamwork and help me be more independent. We chose the rucksack appeal as it is a small local charity that we believe is doing great work. The FIFA 18 event came about as we knew a lot of sixth formers play FIFA at home and compete against each other online”. The tournament, which was held over two days, was a great success, raising £30 for the project and saw Tyese crowned the FIFA18 champion!
