Compton Hospice named as Highfields' chosen charity

Students have chosen Wolverhampton’s Compton Hospice as Highfields’ nominated charity.

All 1,600 pupils were given the chance to  vote from a shortlist of three charities to become the focus of their fundraising efforts, which have been taking place since September and will continue throughout the summer term.

Compton Hospice provides care and support for families living with incurable illnesses across the Black Country, South Staffordshire and East Shropshire. It is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.

Mrs C Hartshorne, said: “The students were all given the chance to vote for what charity they would like to donate money from their fundraising efforts to.

“Compton Hospice does a wonderful job in caring for people living with incurable illnesses as well as providing invaluable support for their families. We are delighted to be able to help their work.”

Highfields raises thousands of pounds each year for its nominated charity as well as other good causes, including Comic Relief and Children in Need.
