UK Students Go Extra Mile for Charity

In the UK too it’s not too hard to find the good kids, the good people.

This week students from the Faraday house of the Philip Morant School in Colchester have been raising money for charity by all means possible.

First they selected a bunch of good causes, among which Cancer Research. Then they came up with activities to support those; a car wash, a pupils versus staff football march and a charity concert.

In one case 11 of them even made the almost ultimate sacrifice: they shaved their head. Fun? Yes. Embarrassing? A bit, maybe. But they did raise almost $800 with it.

Others avoided the bus and opted for sponsored walks to school which for some meant a 32 mile walk. That marathon walk brought in another $700.

All together they raised well over $4000 in one week. For charity.

Good kids: they’re everywhere.
