Pupils at the music school in Winchmore Hill dressed up as part of the two-week ‘practice marathon’ and raised over £290 in support of CLIC Sargent.
Children of all ages gained sponsorship in order to practice over the two weeks with special classes held at the school. And it wasn’t just the pupils dressing up for their lessons, teachers and the adult glee choir also got involved with their wigs and wacky accessories.
Celeste Doyle, principal and director, said: “We’ve had over 100 students volunteer to participate, which is heart-warming indeed, and I have been bowled over by the eagerness of these kids and young people to act in aid of this cause.
“It has also had the children very excited to fundraise. This is because they are raising money for children of a similar age who are going through a difficult time. It’s been amazing to see the reaction from everyone involved.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Charlie Straker said: “We want to say a big thank you to ForeSound School of Music for choosing to take part in Practice-a-thon.
“Lack of funds means that CLIC Sargent can only help two out of three children and young people with cancer, which is why support like this makes such a big difference.”
