Shaping up for Comic Relief!


Charity fever swept through Highfields for this year's national Comic Relief campaign - as fundraisers performed their own version of social media dance craze, ‘The Triangle’.

As part of the fundraising festivities, students and staff made a donation to the cause to wear an item of red clothing or official Comic Relief merchandise for the day.

Students also baked and sold cakes to raise funds, whilst the Sports Hall was transformed into a dance studio at lunchtime for the ‘Triangle’ dance challenge - the latest dance craze which involves three people holding on to each other’s shoulders and jumping in between each other in a co-ordinated pattern.

Funds raised from the day are still being counted.

Miss 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 was great to see so many people getting involved with the activities we staged 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.”

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.
