The Frome College Rotary Interact Club held its second charity event on Monday 24 June.

The weather was perfect for the fundraising event and fete rolled into one. Twenty-six stalls greeted visitors, and many pounds were raised for the two chosen charities - Winston's Wish and Martin House Hospice - which gives support to bereaved families. The charities chosen are in honour of Frome College’s teacher Anna Kirsopp-lewis, and former student Poppy Devey Waterhouse. 

Two elite GB athletes, Jack Rutter and Julie Rogers, were at Frome College for the day to deliver inspirational assemblies and practical workshops. 

Our VIP’s also joined in the celebrations by starting the 1K fun run, which saw Frome Mayor, Mark Dorrington taking part. Although he did not win, he completed the course in a good time, and started the 5K run in which 56 runners from the College and Frome community competed. 

The winner of the 5K male section was local boxer, Ryan Wheeler.  The female winner was Jo Fordham, and her son Sam  in Year 10, who won the junior boys section, joined her.  The winner of the junior girls section was Abi Thomas in Year 11.  Ryan achieved a very impressive time of 17.56 minutes, especially considering the very hot weather.

Students in the College Interact Club organised the majority of the Extravaganza, and were supported by their teacher Liz Sypko and Frome Selwood Rotarian, Malcolm Westgate.  The whole day was a great success, and the monies raised will be going to very deserving charities. 

We would like to thank everyone who attended the Frome Extravaganza whether as a spectator, stall holder, runner or shopper.  Special thanks go to all the businesses that donated raffle prizes and to Frome’s TriClub and Running Club for sponsoring the runs at this fabulous community event!
