Stamford School Fundraise for Help For Heroes
Stamford School students were visited last week by injured paratrooper, Luke Morrison, who collected a cheque for £2,650 on behalf of Help For Heroes. Y8 pupils as well as the Friends of Stamford School (FOSS) have both been raising funds from different events.
Earlier this term, a dozen members of the army from North Luffenham barracks came over to Stamford School and set up an obstacle course. 80 members of Y8 took up the challenge on the cold damp afternoon. Despite the conditions they did admirably well with most completing at least 2 laps. The most laps were completed by Edward Cox who managed an impressive 8 laps. This was not just about fun though, but also about raising money for Help for Heroes. The boys asked their friends and family for sponsorship and happily collected the money afterwards. The most raised by an individual was Milo Sainsbury who raised £650 on his own and in total the boys raised £1800.
The remaining funds were raised by FOSS at their Wartime Dinner Dance during the Autumn Term and from various fundraising events since then. All in all they have raised a further £650.
