Enterprising pupils at a Shefford school have broken through the £5,000 barrier through their charity fundraising.
Year 6 students at Robert Bloomfield Academy in Shefford have managed to raise an astonishing £5065.50 for the NSPCC since the start of the school year.
The enterprising youngsters raised money on their own by selling home-made lemonade, having cake sales and doing odd jobs, including trampoline washing. The children made so many cakes to sell the school sold them over three consecutive days.
Year 6 student, Izzy Harrison, said: “It’s so important we raised the money we did because it will help so many children – who could benefit simply from us doing a times table quiz and selling cakes. I think every school should get involved.”
Fellow Year 6 student, Clarrie Terleph, added: “I felt happy raising money for the NSPCC because there are a lot of children who have no-one to help or listen to them and our money could help them.”
