PUPILS at King’s Ely Junior raised a further £1,856 for The Shelton Sri Lanka Trust by holding a charity action and fundraising day.
So far this year the junior school has raised over £10,000 for the trust, which helps schools in Sri Lanka to provide a good education in a secure environment.
Visitors were treated to a variety of traditional and innovative stalls and attractions, including “Sponge a teacher”, which was popular with staff as well as students; one poor teacher found himself victim to both the Head of King’s Ely Junior and the Head of King’s Ely!
Head of King’s Ely Junior, Richard Whymark said: “The charity action day was very successful and I would like to convey our gratitude to everyone who contributed for their generosity.
“I am delighted to confirm that the students hit their target and have raised over £10,000 so far, which is splendid and reflects a great deal of effort on the whole community’s behalf.”
