Ruislip & Eastcote & Northwood Gazette - - Front Page -

THE pupils at St Martin’s School in North­wood, started rais­ing funds for their char­ity of the year, Young Minds.

They en­joyed a day full of fun filled ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing mak­ing pop up cards, a slime lab, swim­ming and Fri­day Film.

All of the boys dec­o­rated a white base­ball hat to wear in school and the win­ners re­ceived prizes.

So­han De­sai in Year 7 said: “I thought that I hadn’t a chance of win­ning when I saw all of the hats in my class. I was so sur­prised when my name was called out!”

Jai Pa­tel in Year 6 was de­lighted to win, he said: “When the judges called out my name to say that I had won, it was an ex­cit­ing mo­ment.

“I got in­spi­ra­tion from a tele­vi­sion show. I ironed on army patches and made a cam­ou­flage pat­tern with a Sharpie.”

The char­ity day raised £2,000 which is an ex­cel­lent start to­wards the year’s fundrais­ing.
