Thousands of pounds raised for local charity

Thomas Deacon Education Trust teamed up with Peterborough Scale Model Club, raising over £2,600 for Anna’s Hope.

TDET provided the hire facilities at Queen Katharine Academy to the Peterborough Scale Model Club for their national event, free of charge. The Trust absorbed the cost of hire and the club donated this value, along with event entry fees, to a charity chosen by our pupils and staff.


As an academy, we chose Anna’s Hope which is a local charity that supports children with brain tumours. They coordinate support at home and school, help families to make happy memories and raise awareness.


The event was attended by thousands of people and raised an amazing £2,609.20 for the charity. Founder of Anna’s Hope, Carole Hughes, said: “We just want to say a huge thank you to TDET and the Peterborough Scale Model Club for their generous donation. This money is vital to the work we do and will help us continue to support families and children with brain tumours across the East of England.”
