There is a fantastic Media Makeup Masterclass event taking place at Accrington & Rossendale College on Monday 11th June, 10am – 3pm and may be of particular interest to current Year 10/11 students with an interest in media, film, performing arts, beauty, media make-up etc. The event is also open to parents and school staff.
The Rhyddings Business & Enterprise School Junior Leadership Team have been lending their time and technical expertise to help publicise a local charity event.
Our Year 11 team of Thomas Gales-Ellis, Bethany Beresford, Thomas Johnston and Katie Aspin have helped Church and Oswaldtwistle Rotary Club set up social media pages informing the public about their annual Walk 4 Your Charity event.
The Twitter account and Facebook pages have been providing regular updates about the walk, which will take place on Sunday 13th May.
Now in its 13th year, the event has helped people raise over £400,000 for their own chosen charities. Walkers will be setting off from Red Rose Court in Clayton-le-Moors and have a choice of a 5k or 10k route around Great Harwood and Rishton along the Leeds-Liverpool canal.
Attractions this year include a samba band, football skills, town crier and the chance to meet an Imperial Stormtrooper!
Head boy Thomas-Gales Ellis said: “It’s been great to work with the Rotary Club on this, not only to help publicise such an important event, but also using our skills and knowledge to help members of the community.”
Anyone interested in raising money can register for the walk online at https://rotarywalk.wordpress.com/registration-form/
Dan’s Trust is a charitable foundation, established in 2012 in memory of Daniel Bagshaw, a cycling enthusiast and extremely talented and athletic young man.
It promotes and funds research into the early diagnosis of cardiac risk in the young and the improvement of treatment methods for sudden cardiac arrest.
Dan’s Trust also financially supports local youngsters in the Ribble Valley and Hyndburn area, where Dan was from, to fulfill their own potential and ambitions – this includes Rhyddings student Trinity Woodman who competes nationally with the Ribble Valley Gymnastics Team.

Rhyddings students helped to raise over £6,000 for charity in the run up to Christmas whilst helping out Santa Claus and Church and Oswaldtwistle Rotary Club.
As part of their Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award, Year 9 volunteers accompanied Santa’s Sleigh as it toured through the area in December collecting donations from residents. Other students gave their time helping to pack shopping bags at local supermarkets.
The money raised will be split between North West Air Ambulance, Accrington Blind Society, Oswaldtwistle Food Bank and the MS Society.
Michael Jackson from Church and Oswaldtwistle Rotary Club said of the collection he attended: “Congratulations to everyone who was on Santa duty, especially the students of Rhyddings School who, with Paul Trickett and Carmel Cunliffe, performed so well. I was very proud of them all.
“The number of students together with Rotarians and Friends meant we had the perfect staffing. For two solid hours the students displayed enthusiasm and energy and certainly made a significant impression on me and on all Rotary members present.
“I have been going out with Santa collections for 18 years, last evening was certainly one of the best, if not the best, and this is mainly down to Rhyddings School – a marvellous evening.”
