LYDNEY students raised nearly £500 for a national charity campaign, and towards their end of year celebrations, last week.
The pupils, all at the Dean Academy held a non-uniform day, with a raffle, and sold cakes at lunchtime to raise funds for Comic Relief, which supports projects in the UK and overseas.
Fiona Price, assistant director of world affairs at the school, who helped to co-ordinate the fundraising, said “Pupils were given a raffle ticket when they paid their non-uniform money.
There were over 60 prizes up for grabs, which were raffled at the end of the day. Other fundraising activities such as selling cakes at lunchtime were also organised by our students. Overall they raised £496 which will go towards Comic Relief and the Year 11 school prom.”
