Pupils of St Edward’s Royal Free Ecumenical Middle School in Parsonage Lane raised £2,220 for good causes on Wednesday.

Celebration Day is when the pupils mark the Harvest Festival and give thanks for the life of St Edward and the foundation of their school with a service in the morning followed by an afternoon of fun and fundraising by the pupils.

More than 500 pupils and staff attended a church service at St Edward’s Catholic Church on Alma Road.

Head boy and Ben Wagstaff, 12 and head girl Savannah Canning, 13 then visited the Almshouses in Bachelors Acre, King George VI Day Centre in Clarence Road and Windsor Foodshare distributing the harvest festival food.

Then came an afternoon of games and challenges as pupils raised money for charities by playing games include tin can alley, sponge throwing, apple bobbing, guess how many sweeties in the jar and many other fun and messy activities.

Co-Headteacher, Rod Welsh said: "Celebration Day is one of the highlights of the year for the pupils as they have great fun raising money for the school’s chosen charities."
