Volunteering Achievement

A Tupton Hall School sixth form student who took part in some filming as part of a voluntary project had it streamed to schools and organisations across the UK.

Rowan Holmes took part in filming at Chesterfield Royal Hospital for We.org.

WE is an international movement  working with charities and organisations to help people across the world make positive changes.

We Day took place in Wembley Stadium in celebration of young people making a difference in their communities and the whole event, including Rowan's footage, was streamed live to schools and organisations. 

The Voluntary Service Team at Chesterfield Royal Hosptial have expressed their gratitude to Rowan and said that she was one of the first students they recruited as part of the scheme to have four young people covering areas such as maternity, emergency departments, the general medical ward and surgical ward on a rota basis. 

Through funding from the Pears Foundation the scheme has now developed into a two year project and Chesterfield Royal Hospital are actively recruiting 16 to 24 years old from surrounding schools and colleges. 

Well done to Rowan, you have  done Tupton Hall School proud!
