Cook 4 Cook

Boys and staff  in Cook House baked and sold cookies  for their chosen charity, the Wycombe Homeless Connection, raising a yummy £ 1,230 in the process.

Cook House showed tremendous teamwork to pull together and ensure that there were members of Cook House in the Jubilee Kitchen from 9:00am – 3:00pm all day.  They certainly personified the Davenies Code and I was extremely proud of every member of Cook for their help cooking and selling the House Cookies at the gate, as well as collecting sponsors.

Well done to our star bakers in each year group who were able to wear the chef hat for their wonderful attitude! Well done also to Year 8 boys in Cook for their excellent effort selling the cookies at the end of the day, with the help of Nic and Finn. Amit, as House Captain, and Ishaan as deputy, set wonderful examples; as did the rest of Year 8.

Thank you also to the tremendous support of all the parents, and in particular Mrs Khosla and Mrs Lennon for helping with the sale of the cookies on the day, as well as to all parents with their generous sponsorships and support and the Cook House staff – none more so than Mrs Ayre who kept the kitchen (and myself!) functioning!  Finally, thank you to the Friends of Davenies for lending their card machines for the day.

In total, Cook House raised an outstanding £1,230 for the Wycombe Homeless Connection.  This amazing amount of money will be used to help those in need. Lynne, from the charity, kindly popped in to show her support for the boys on the day which was well-received.

As with all things, there is friendly competition amongst the Houses and this was no exception. Given the energy and enthusiasm generated by the boys in Cook, it was no surprise that they sold the most cookies! In second place was Scott House, followed by Drake and Shackleton. Thank you to everyone for entering into the House spirit!
