A Pill cancer charity has been given hundreds of pounds thanks to a school’s week of fundraising.
Sixth form students at St Katherine’s School spent a month organising a raising and giving (RAG) week for Penny Brohn UK.
Daily events including karaoke, a table football tournament and even a zombie apocalypse day helped raise a total of £225 for the charity.
Students also spent a day wearing their pyjamas and held a cake sale, while Penny Brohn community fundraiser Ian Riddell hosted an assembly at the school to talk about the charity’s work.
Penny Brohn UK community fundraiser Mr Riddell said: “We were delighted to have the support of a great school in our community and hope to keep working together in the future.
