Staff and students at a secondary school in Hornchurch have set themselves a new record after raising nearly £28,000 for charities.

The Campion School, in Wingletye Lane, held several fundraising endeavours over the past few months which included a charity ball and sponsored walk - which saw more than 300 parents students and teachers take part.

On Friday the school welcomed representatives from Motor Neurone Disease Association and Cardiac Risk in the Young who were handed cheques of £3,000 each whilst the Sepsis Trust and the Teenage Cancer Trust received donations of £3,681, which was doubled by the charity, and £14,578 respectively.

Headteacher Keith Williams said: “The school community has made a fantastic effort this year to raise much needed funds for very special charities which are very close to the school’s heart.

“I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of students, parents and staff of the school who have given so much of their time.”
