Schoolchildren raise £2,000 for charity
SCHOOLBOYS took part in a number of fundraising activities in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Thorpe House School in Gerrards Cross held a Charities Week earlier this month, during which events included a bake sale and a mufti day, paying £1 to take part.
Pupils also sacrificed hot lunches on one day, bringing in packed lunches so the cost of preparing school dinners could go to charity.
Younger pupils took part in a Spanish Day, which included dressing in yellow and red and flag and fan making, as well as flamenco dancing.
More than £2,000 was eventually raised.
The school’s charities representative Dominic Adams said: “As charities rep at Thorpe, Charities Week is one of my favourite parts of the autumn term.
“Macmillan Cancer Support is a very worthwhile charity and I’m really pleased that we have raised so much this week.”
