Alicia was nominated by four people, including her tutor, for her longstanding charity work. This includes donating £20 of her own money to the Haiti earthquake, walking 18 km for the Farleigh Hospice Sunrise Walk – twice – walking the Braintree and Bocking Carnival 20 km sponsored walk to raise money for Little Havens Children’s Hospice and organising fundraising for BBC Children in Need. Phew!
Alicia plans to give the £200 she wins from the Jack Petchey Foundation to the Notley Cheerleading Team so they can buy much needed costumes. There are fourteen students who are in the team, which is held in the Dance Studio on Mondays after school; supervised by Miss Knight.
