Year seven and eight students from Bishop Vesey Grammar School in Sutton Coldfield, have raised over £1,100 for CLIC Sargent and the Roald Dahl Foundation by taking part in the Readathon fundraising event.
The students at the school took part in the Readathon event to improve their reading skills and help raise money for children and young people with cancer.
Teresa Smethurst, Library Resource Manager at the grammar school said: “They were inspired by the books they read and enjoyed sharing feedback and recommending books to their peers.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Noemie Salvaudon said: “We would like to congratulate all the students on their hard work and fantastic achievement. The funds they have raised will help us support more children and young people with cancer in their community and across the country.”
