Students at Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy have been fundraising for the Royal British Legion as part of their work on the anniversary of VE Day.

The students and staff baked cakes to sell at break time and raised £200 for the RBL. The fundraising event was organised as part of the students’ work on the 70th anniversary of VE Day, which has been studied by each form group. Students learned that most foods and goods that are taken for granted were rationed.
