Year 12 fundraising efforts for the Hobart Women’s Shelter
Our Year 12 boys have been campaigning for their chosen charity, the Hobart Women’s Shelter throughout the year with a variety of fundraising events, finishing with the Run-a-thon last term where as a group, the boys rain for 12 hours overnight on the War Memorial Oval. Together, Year 12 ran 557 laps (183km) over the evening and raised over $17,000 for the Hobart Women’s Shelter. Well done on this wonderful achievement for such an important cause! Not only have the boys raised much needed funds, they have also raised awareness about gender equality and domestic violence among their peers.
Listen to the Hutchins Podcast episode where they interview Janet Saunders (CEO of the Hobart Women’s Shelter), discuss programs that are run by the shelter, and listen to some interviews with the boys throughout the evening. Ewan Sloan (School Captain) and Hamish Betts (Prefect) visited the Hit100.9 Hobart radio station to talk about their fundraising initiatives with Jimmy & Nath, and present Janet with a final cheque for $17,504.35. Listen to their interview.
