Megan and Emily get prom fund started
Year 11 students Megan Hogg and Emily Carroll got this year’s prom fund started when they ran a stall at a car boot sale.
The sale took place at Corby Town Football Club’s ground.
Megan and Emily set up their stall at around 7am and traded until around 12.30pm. Their efforts raised £85, the first cash to go into the fund to go towards this year’s Year 11 prom.
Megan said: “We sold cakes and shortbread that Emily made with her grandma and got together car boot stuff from different people to sell.
“We told people it was to raise money so everyone can afford a prom ticket, so the more we raise the lower the prices.
“This is the first event we have done this year to raise money. We sold more than we expected and raised more than we expected as well.”
Megan and Emily are now planning to run a stall at a Christmas fete at Corby Old Village Church to raise more cash.
