At the end of the third term, Union High School launched a Trolley Dash fundraiser in partnership with the local Pick n Pay.
Hundreds of raffle tickets were sold over the following months and on Friday afternoon, November 15, the three lucky winners were announced.
This afternoon (Sunday, 17 November) at 17:00, the three winners, Zaré Grobler (3-minute dash), Phillida Kingwill (2-minute dash) and James Rose-Innes (1-minute dash) gathered at Pick n Pay to take part in the trolley dash.
The winners were joined by Mrs Lou-Anne Gerber’s very excited Grade 6G class and their parents. The Grade 6G class sold the most raffle tickets and were therefore invited to join in the fun!
With the encouragement of the Grade 6 class, winners were running through the aisles of Pick n Pay, filling their trolleys with whatever their heart desired.
After checkout, the winners made off with an array of goodies including giant boxes of Lindt chocolates, specialty coffees and meat.
Cheryl Waddelow from Pick n Pay then also allowed Mrs Gerber, class teacher of the Grade 6Gs, with the very excited encouragement of her class, to have a 30-second dash for an end-of-year class party.
Eats and drinks were also offered to all who attended.
Union High School wishes to thank Pick n Pay for their generosity in sponsoring this fundraiser.
It was great fun for all involved!
