Perse pupils have fun raising funds for Children in Need
13 Nov 2020
Perse pupils have done their bit to raise funds for the BBC Children in Need appeal.
At the Upper, pupils helped to raise £2,385 for the cause by donating £2 each to wear non-uniform, with many youngsters also getting involved in a range of further fun fundraising activities.
Year 7 pupils went on an orienteering treasure hunt, while Year 8 and Lower Sixth got a kick out of a five-a-side football tournament.
Capture the flag was the mission for Year 9 pupils, while Years 10 and 11 ducked and dived with games of dodgeball and Upper Sixth students took part in a netball competition.
Perse Charities Co-ordinator Claire Surgeoner said: “There was a really positive buzz around the school about what was hopefully our biggest Children in Need fundraiser yet. It was great to see so many pupils get involved to help raise funds for projects that support disadvantaged youngsters in this country.”
Meanwhile, more than £1,300 was raised at the Pelican, with children having fun dressing up in their best Pudsey Bear-inspired outfits.
