Creative fundraisers from Claires Court Schools raise £10k for charity

Creative fundraising efforts at Claires Court Schools in Maidenhead have raised nearly £10,000 for charities.

Pupils presented cheques for £3,177 to three local good causes - Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP), Kids in Sport and the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service (ADCHS) - on Thursday.

They raised the cash during the spring term through a variety of activities including fancy dress sponsored walks, cake sales, football matches, a cocktail bar and selling their artwork.

The charities were voted for by the school council, and were delighted with the donations.

Susie Knowles from ADCHS said: "We can't thank the school enough.

"It is so lovely that local children want to help other local children less fortunate than themselves, we are so grateful for their continued support."
