Fund raising events galore have brought in money for good causes thanks to the students and staff at Marshland High School.

Elizabeth Dormor, head of Marshland High, said she was proud of the effort the students made and the commitment they have shown to the community and beyond.

Elizabeth Eyre, head of Churchill House, who worked alongside Marshland’s student council to do something funny for money, said: “The student council did amazingly well developing ideas and ways to raise money for Comic Relief this year.

“Their hard work paid off with a record breaking total for the school – well done to all who took part, donated and fund-raised personally.”

A Comic Relief day raised more than £1,400 while Children in Need day netted £204.63.

A juvenile diabetes onesie day brought in £741.35.

A better without bullies event raised £65.61 while festive fun helped send hampers to The Ferry Project and shoeboxes to a local women’s refuge.

Ms Benson head of Gainsborough House at the school said: “Here at Marshland we feel that it is important to develop our students’ awareness of both themselves and those around them, not just locally but further afield too.

“Once again students have put a lot of time and effort into working to raise money for larger projects and charities.”
