Tightlipped Pupils Raise Big Money For Charity 2009: Students St

Tightlipped pupils raise big money for charity

STUDENTS at St George’s College gave their teachers some peace and quiet when then said shhhhh for cancer sufferers.
On Wednesday (April 29) they met with representatives from Macmillan Cancer Support who told them all about where the money they raised will go. The students, 110 of them managed to keep silent from 8.40am until 1pm raising &pound2,500 for the charity. When they are not staying quiet they are busy baking cakes and putting the kettle on as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Helen Rogers, Surrey fund-raising manager for Macmillan said: “We are so grateful to the students, parents and teachers at St George’s for their support. Staying quiet is not an easy feat so we would like to say a big thank you and congratulations to all the students who took part.” The money raised will enable Macmillan to continue to provide vital services for people affected by cancer. Veteran Chertsey councillor Ray Lowther has attended his last full council meeting, as his 53-year-old political career draws to a close.
