Changing Lives with Chocolate

1 April 2019
Changing Lives with Chocolate

With Easter just around the corner, chocolate eggs and bunnies are at the forefront of everyone’s minds. At The Peak Academy, we have decided to combine a passion for chocolate and our students’ culinary skills to change lives.

In the final week of term before the Easter break, our students will be taking part in the Easter Chocolate Challenge and raising money for an excellent cause — NACOA (The National Association for Children of Alcoholics) — and we want you to get involved!

How You Can Help

The Easter Chocolate Challenge is a competition that allows our students to demonstrate the amazing skills they have developed during their food technology lessons at The Peak. It will be accompanied by a raffle for staff and students that raises money to support NACOA.

To make this event a success and maximise our donation to this amazing charity, we want your help. Whether you would like to make a cash donation, supply prizes for the competition winners, provide items to be included in the raffle, or take part in our silent auction, we would be delighted to hear from you. No matter how big or small, your contribution will really make a difference to people’s lives.

We have already been gifted some wonderful prizes, including:

  • A one-night stay, including breakfast, at Lanelay Hall Hotel in Talbot Green, Pontyclun, South Wales. This stunning 4-star hotel has a gym, which can be used by hotel guests free of charge, while spa discounts are available to make your visit the ultimate relaxing getaway.
  • An original Welsh ladies’ British Lions scarf. Produced by Victoria Secrets PINK, this limited edition scarf was one of those given exclusively to the wives and girlfriends of the players selected to represent the British & Irish Lions.
  • A grey men’s Under Armour quarter-zip top, valued at £120.

The National Association for Children of Alcoholics

Earlier this term, we were lucky enough to welcome a speaker from NACOA into school to talk to our students. He spoke about his childhood and how his parents’ alcoholism had affected him during his teenage years and right through until his mid-twenties. It was an emotionally charged speech that touched our staff as well as the students.

The NACOA provides incredible support for anyone who suffered at a young age because of a parent with an alcohol problem. They extend their services to people of all ages, from children through to the elderly. Their work is truly amazing, and we are intent on helping them continue their good work well into the future.
