Pupils raise £1500 for Children in Need
Pupils from the Stamford Endowed Schools raised over £1,500 for Children in Need last week.
The boys at Stamford School raised just under £1,000 through a number of fun activities run by different form groups, including busking, a cake sale, ‘sponge-the-teacher’, ‘guess how many sweets in a jar’ and a raffle for a very stylish teddy sporting an iTunes voucher. There were also various challenges of dexterity and agility, including ‘lob-a-choc’, a basketball shootout, penalty shootout and crossbar challenge. The total is still being totted up as some pupils collect more sponsorship money.
Helen Chew, charity co-ordinator at Stamford School, commented “Everyone put in a lot of effort and showed great enthusiasm in running and supporting activities.”
Children at the Earlybird Nursery also did their bit for Children in Need by collecting loose change from home and bringing it in to make a spotty Earlybird in the outside play area. The nursery also held a raffle and cake stall. Nicky Woodward, Nursery manager, said “The children had a lovely day and we raised just over £300 for this great cause.”
Students at Stamford High School also raised £240 from the proceeds of a ‘Green Fair’ which included fun games, a raffle and ‘bring and buy’ sale.
A big thank you and well done to all parents, students and staff who helped with the fundraising efforts.
