The students of Hawkins House at Torquay Boys Grammar School have been spending their first term at school collecting their 20p pieces and raising money for CLIC Sargent.
Lisa Morath, head of house at Torquay Boys Grammar School, said: “The reason we support the charity is because some years ago one of our students unfortunately died of leukaemia and was greatly supported during his treatment by CLIC Sargent, especially from their Homes from Home in Bristol.”
Students were asked to fill Smarties tubes with their spare 20p pieces, which raised an incredible £770. Along with some other fundraising activities since September, Hawkins House has raised a total of £1,000.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Jordan Anderton said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone in Hawkins House at Torquay Boys Grammar School for their amazing support.
“The money they have raised will make a real difference to the young people that CLIC Sargent supports and they should be extremely proud of what they have achieved.”
