Sheringham High students raise money for floods appeal

Students at a north Norfolk school have raised �1,500 for a floods appeal.

The money was raised by pupils at Sheringham High School for The Disasters Emergency Committee Pakistan Floods Appeal, which is an umbrella organisation for 13 charities.

The money was raised by students and staff during the school's charities week which was held in December last year, with a range of out-of-lesson activities and sponsored fundraising events.

The highlight of the week was a lunchtime performance of Sheringham's Got Talent involving Sixth Form students and staff.

Head Tim Roderick said: 'We have all been moved by the plight of the millions of people who have been affected by the flooding in Pakistan. The students and staff have been magnificent with their fund-raising efforts.

'Our students have a proud record of supporting national and international charities and our students' effort during charities week make me immensely proud of them and shows the very positive work being undertaken by many young people today'.
