We have selected our group consisting of Pat Hill, Zain Woolard, Scott Taylor, Alan Cockayne, Andy Smith and Lauren Higson; we chose to be a group because we are all friends and have cooperated successfully in the past, this is the reason our group will hopefully be equally as successful. We have chosen to do fund-raising for the charity of Christies Cancer Research, we chose this because we believe collectedly that putting something back into the community is beneficial is for the community and us. The idea for the activity was to do an 11-a-side teachers football match, along with an Yr7 Dodge ball Competition and a Department Athletics Competition. The activities week was democratically chosen and a unanimous vote concluded this original idea; we chose to have this because everyone has an equal to vote in a democracy.
Contribution of the Others
Each person has to contribute to the original running of the activity.
Alan has been democratically voted as group leader and the group as a whole feel this is beneficial to the group and the amount of fundraising we will receive. He will help bring the group together and Alan has great communicational skills. As group leader he will volunteer himself for advertising the event in assemblies; this will involve communicate and selling the event.
Mark will be asking the teachers for their participation and their free time. This is because he can express and communicate ideas clearly and he is a very gregarious person.
Scott will be helping with the design of tickets, posters and advertisements. Scott has expert technical knowledge which will aid the group in selling the event and raising as much money as possible.
Lauren has given up his time to be selling tickets and assisting in the production of tickets. This is because he believes that aiding in the community is very important to the further advance of race relations.
Zain is going to be assisting where ever he can, for example making posters, officiating in the match and selling tickets. We believe Zain is a vital part of our group because he pulls his weight wherever needed.
I will be officiating in the game and selling tickets and generally helping wherever I can. I will be officiating in the games because I have a general knowledge of the rules of the sports.
