The magnificent efforts of students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 at Warden Park Academy have raised over £12,000 for charity.

The money will be shared equally among the four charities the children chose to support this year: SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy), the Rockinghorse Children’s Charity based at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, Samaritans and Kangaroos Charity for Young Disabled People.

The funds were raised throughout the year and activities included a sponsored paraglide, swimathon, a 12 hour football match, selling home made photographic cards, even a walk around the school field in boots full of baked beans!

One student recorded an official singles and all sales from I-tunes were donated.

Headteacher, Jonathan Morris said:“Over the last 10 years Warden Park students have raised over £100,000 for charity - a massive achievement which demonstrates both the children’s and the academy’s commitment to helping others.

“We are very proud of their efforts and of their ingenuity in coming up with new ideas to raise funds!”
