Students raise £1,000 for Comic Relief

Students across the three schools raised a total of £1,000 for Comic Relief last week. At Dunannie children wore red and funny items of clothing and paid £1 each for the privilege, raising £325, including sales of red noses. Dunhurst combined fundraising with a focus on fair-trade raising £300, which was split between Comic Relief and a school charity, Miraflor, which supports the education of children from the coffee farming communities in Nicaragua. At Bedales, students dressed up in various different comedic guises and baked cakes for the benefit of an appreciative school community who donated generously raising £600. The Spring Concert fell on Red Nose Day, giving the chamber choir and orchestra a somewhat unusual appearance during rehearsals. Read more. View photos of Comic Relief.
