THOUSANDS of pounds are expected to have been raised by kind-hearted Felpham Community College students.
All the college’s pupils took part in its latest charity week to back three good causes – Macmillan Cancer Support, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Sussex Snowdrop Trust.
Sixth former Megan Balcombe, the college’s head of grant, said: “There were lots of things going on throughout the week.
“It is definitely the charity committee’s busiest time, but it is great fun and a chance to help raise as much money as possible for the charities we choose to support.”
The action-packed week included a range of activities for all age groups. They included an inter-form enterprise challenge, a penny challenge, cinema and hot drinks rooms for lunchtimes and sweet competitions.
The annual college sponsored dog walk, with more than 70 students and dogs walking 10 miles along the seafront, proved as popular as ever.
Another hit was the Felpham’s Got Talent show. Plenty of tickets were sold to watch the star-studded performances.
Mark Anstiss, the college’s headteacher, said: “The week of activities is always great fun and we encourage everyone to join as much as possible.”
