Hardenhuish School’s charity week raised £1,780 for Cancer Research and Jemima’s Gift.

Jemima’s Gift is a fund set up to celebrate the life of ten-year-old Jemima Prees from Colerne who died in a skiing accident last year.

Money raised by the fund provides opportunities for other children to reach their full potential in sports, the arts and learning activities.

Pupils held a FIFA console game tournament, Easter egg hunt and competitions.

Students from year 7 tutor groups raised money for Cancer Research by selling badges to their peers during break times and lunchtimes.

Headteacher Jan Hatherell said: “There was a wonderful spirit of togetherness in all the activities and a lot of fun was had, by staff as well as pupils.

“It is fantastic to be able to support charities.”
