On Friday, July 20, Julia Garden from the Young Minds charity was presented with a cheque for £7,263 raised by the pupils of Stanborough School, which was the result of a year-long fund-raising effort.

Events were organised throughout the year and included the annual ‘Run for Stanborough’ event, Christmas Jumper day and Carol Concert and the recent ‘Festival on the Field’.

There was also a number of smaller events that helped to raise the sum.

Headteacher Peter Brown said: “As ever, we are very proud of the efforts of our students to raise money for a very worthy cause.

“As I retire from the school after 15 years, it is with an enormous amount of pride I can say the students, parents and staff of the Stanborough community have raised a total of over £100,000 for a wide range of charities.”
