Students Support Children in Need
The students of the Stamford Endowed Schools created inventive ways to raise money for charity last week. With stalls and games set up at lunchtime as a way to get fellow pupils to part with their pocket money, for Children in Need.
At Stamford Junior School, pupils took non-uniform day to a new level and went to school in their pyjamas, and at Stamford School the boys spent lunchtime manning stands and events such as cake stalls, penalty shoot-outs, storage hunters and a tombola. Some talented brass players also busked on the High Street playing theme tunes from Rocky and the Pink Panther as well as some classics, all to collect spare change from passers-by.
At the High School, Sixth Form students took part in a baking competition, inspired by a recent visit from Mary Berry. The bakes were all sold for the charity the next day in school. Fine Foods Store Ltd and teachers from Stamford High School also donated a range of bakes which were sold along-side the competitors creations. Waitrose in Stamford, generously sponsored the competition by donating ingredients to the contestants which is part of the partnership's ‘Community Matters’ scheme, designed to help local charities and events. Lambs Cookware and Fine Foods Store Ltd in Stamford kindly donated prizes to the competition which were thoroughly appreciated by the winners. Overall with the help and support of Waitrose, Fine Foods Store Ltd and Lambs Cookware, the competition alone raised £162.50 for Children in Need.
