Three is the magic number as school tops £5k for charity
Students from Diss High School raised a whopping £5,759 for three charities – thanks to a host of fundraising events during an annual charity week.
The money will be split between East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Mind and Dogs Trust, after the three charities were picked out by the school’s sixth form student committee.
Sixth form co-director James Hurley said: “We are incredibly proud of our students. Charity week is a big event in our school calendar and students were fully engaged in all aspects, from carefully organising events to enthusing the whole school to get involved.
“The huge amount raised is testament to their commitment to good causes and to the local community.”
The week included fancy dress and non-uniform days, a strictly come dancing competition, an eating challenge, a charity auction, cake sales, a quiz night a drag show and a staff karaoke.
