Sherborne International Students Support Local Charities
On Friday 5th May ten students, including members of the School's Duke of Edinburgh Scheme, presented a cheque to the charity based 'Friends' of local Yeatman Hospital. Students raised £347.77 by taking part in various charity events held at School including 'non-uniphone' day, pancake race and a raffle.
Students chatted confidently to hospital staff and were shown projects that donations to the charity have been spent on so far including a communal lounge and an end of life privacy suite. Reporters from two local newspapers were also present to record the event.
£294.51 was also sent to Oxfam for The East Africa Food Crisis Appeal.
