The Old School Henstead fundraises for young cancer patients

Pupils from The Old School Henstead took part in two events, a charity concert and a whole-school sponsored walk in aid of CLIC Sargent.

The Old School Henstead fundraises for young cancer patients

The concert was performed to a full house at the United Reformed Church, Southwold and included both vocal and instrumental performances along with individual and choral poetry recitals.

The concert was said to be a fantastic evening and raised £700 for the school’s chosen charity of the year, CLIC Sargent.

The Henstead Hike

The whole school then took part in the Henstead Hike, a sponsored walk of approximately 10 miles, starting from the school in the village of Henstead, across country to the Nicholas Everitt Park at Oulton Broad, where a celebratory barbecue was kindly hosted by the Oulton Broad Yacht Club.

Joe McKinney, headmaster of The Old School Henstead, said: “We are delighted to fundraise for CLIC Sargent because it provides such wonderful support to local families who have children undergoing treatment for cancer.

“Fundraising gives all members of the school community the opportunity to come together for this great charity. The children have really risen to this challenge.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Daisy Turner said: “Last year, CLIC Sargent supported 70 families from Suffolk and 69 families from Norfolk by providing them with clinical, practical, financial and emotional support which is why The Old School’s fundraising is so important.”
