Students raise hundreds of pounds for charity

2nd December 2019


ENTERPRISING pupils have been using their entrepreneurial skills to good effect raising hundreds of pounds for children’s charities.

Pupils made a range of goods, from cakes to keyrings, fundraising fairies to badges and plates to coasters, to raise funds for Children in Need.

The primary-age children then staged an event for family and friends at Marchbank Free School, Darlington, and, including the proceeds of a sponsored dance-athon, raised more than £230 for the popular cause.

Subject lead Hannah Kelly said: “Everyone had a brilliant time. Each class came up with a variety of enterprise ideas, then voted on which one to develop. They then made and sold their goods, manning stalls and becoming keen salespeople.

“They took the project very seriously, came up with some fantastic ideas and were thrilled to raise so much money for such a worthy cause.”
