Our free, public, annual debates have raised over three thousand pounds for charity. This year’s debate raised £261 for  Plan UK’s fund “Because I am a Girl” which campaigns for girls’ rights “to ensure that all girls can live safe from violence, go to school, marry who they want, when they want and have their voices heard” .
