Highfields raises funds for Comic Relief

Charity spirit swept Highfields as students and staff showed their support for this year's national Comic Relief fundraising campaign.

As part of the fundraising festivities, students and staff donated £1 to the cause to wear an item of red clothing for the day. Staff also took part in a netball tournament and dodgeball competition whilst students baked cakes to raise funds.

Comic Relief aims to bring about positive and lasting change in the lives of poor and disadvantaged people across the world, whilst tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice. The charity hosts a Red Nose Day extravaganza every two years on the BBC, supported by celebrities and politicians, to help raise millions of pounds for the cause.

Ms J.Parker, Head of Lower School, said: “Highfields is proud of the support that students, parents and staff give to both national and local charities, raising thousands of pounds each year.

“It has been great to see so many people getting involved in the activities we put on to support the Comic Relief campaign. I want to thank everyone for their support, helping to make this a day to remember whilst making a difference.”
