Felsted School pupils have raised more than £5000 for a hospice after two years of charity events.
The girls in Follyfield boarding house chose St Clare Hospice as their house charity and have held many fundraising events for the hospice, including staging a musical show, baking cakes and organising a game of bingo, raising £5277 overall.
St Clare Hospice provides care for people living with terminal or life limiting illnesses across west Essex and East Hertfordshire. The hospice costs more than £4.6million a year to run, with limited NHS funding.
A cheque was presented to Cheryl Armitage, hospice director, who told pupils that donations are invaluable to their charity and this amount would make a big difference to the lives of many people.
Follyfield Housemistress, Sonia Wilson said; “I am so proud of the girls who have all worked so hard fundraising for St Clare Hospice and helped to make a difference.”
