Mannequin Challenge raises money for Children In Need

Students and staff have thrown their weight behind this year's Children In Need fundraising campaign - including staging their own special Highfields Mannequin Challenge.

Members of Highfields’ Student Leadership Charity Committee organised a series of events and activities to support the fundraising drive, helping to raise almost £800 for the cause.

More than 100 students and staff took part in a Mannequin Challenge in the school's Sports Hall as part of the event. Other activities included a lunchtime Pudsey Treasure Hunt, a fundraising Fitness Frenzy and confectionery raffle.

Students also donated money to wear Children in Need t-shirts and accessories as well as spotty ties and socks to support the charity drive, which this year had the theme ‘Show Us Your Spots and Raise Lots’.

Children in Need is the BBC’s charity which works to change the lives of disabled children and young people in the UK. It has raised £600 million since it was launched in 1980.

The Mannequin Challenge is an online trend originating in the USA which sees people uploading videos of themselves looking as though they have been frozen in time.
