STAFF and students from a Malvern school were celebrating after helping to raise more than £5,000 for a selection of worthwhile causes.
Members of The Chase School raked in £5,148.53 from their fund-raising activities over the past academic year.
The school’s charity committee, run by members of the Lower Sixth, have worked to collect money for local, national and international charities since September 2014.
A total of £600 will be donated to St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester, £811 to The British Heart Foundation, £1,000 to Breast Cancer Care and the Nepalese Disasters Relief Committee also received more than £1,000.
Emily Johnson, staff link for the committee, said: “The enthusiasm and dedication of these students is extraordinary.
“They are full of ideas, hard-working and completely altruistic in their ideas and efforts.
“For such an impressive amount of money to be raised in just nine months is incredible and all of the group deserve to be very proud of their work.”
