Students at St Peter’s Church of England Middle School in Old Windsor, have been busy fundraising during Lent - and a wide variety of good causes have benefitted.

The school has four houses, Lancaster, Stuart, Tudor and York and each chose a charity to raise money for. The houses held morning assemblies informing students about their chosen charity.

They all worked hard running fund raising stalls as the school celebrated the end of term.. One stall offered a chance to throw wet sponges at teachers, one sold cakes, There was a 'guessing where the treasure was on a map' challenge, naming soft toys, penalty shoot outs, making and selling smoothies, making and selling slime, making and selling waffles, pinning the tail on the donkey, decorating cookies and raffles.

Lancaster House raised £426.24 for Crohn’s and Colitis UK; Stuart House raised £301.78 for Worldwide Fund for Nature; Tudor House raised £326.95 for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and York House raised £294.95 for the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service charity which set up the new hospice in Maidenhead.

Headteacher Andy Snipp, who was one of the teachers soaked by wet sponges said: "The Lent projects are an important part of our distinctive christian ethos and I am very proud of the efforts that our community have put in to raising funds for local and national charities."
