School­child­ren raise £2,000 for char­ity

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.”
