Girls’ top marks for fundrais­ing

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Alan Hayes alan.hayes@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

THE girls of St He­len’s School in North­wood get an ‘A+’ for fundrais­ing.

By sell­ing their 2015 school cal­en­dar they have raised an im­pres­sive £9,000, with more still to come.

The pupils at the school in East­bury Road, North­wood, held a Christ­mas fundrais­ing day where the cal­en­dar was on sale and there were plenty of other stalls to tempt shop­pers, as well as a tra­di­tional Santa’s grotto.

Char­i­ties they have helped in­clude Chil­dren in Need, Ataxia UK, Michael So­bell Hospice, Leukaemia & Lym­phoma Re­search, plus Wat­ford Hos­pi­tal Ra­dio and the Bri­tish Red Cross.

And over on the Young En­ter­prise stall, what might be­come the must-have gift of Christ­mas 2015 was on show – the Selfie Stick, a gad­get in­vented for cap­tur­ing the per­fect smart­phone selfie.
