Pupils go to great lengths for charity
FOUR charities will benefit from a share of £1,000 raised by students at Brighouse High School.
Fun and fund-raising was the focus of the Year Ten Giving Nations Event as part of a school project where each form chose a charity and events they could run to raise money on the day.
An army obstacle course, ‘Bush-Tucker’ trials where pupils pulled stars out of buckets of jelly and sawdust, and timed puzzles were the main events.
There were also many sweet sales such as fresh popcorn and a chocolate fountain.
Some pupils volunteered to be gunged and Liam O’Malley raised more than £100 to have his hair shaved for charity.
The winning form was 10S who raised more than £300 from their sale of Krispy Creme doughnuts and a cake raffle.
The chosen charities that will benefit from the funds raised are Help for Heroes, Leukaemia Research, Make a Wish Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support.
