Cobham Hall students raise money for Japanese Appeal

Published Monday 28th of March 2011 01:09:05 PM

Students at Cobham Hall are quick to help those in need around the world, and a special Japanese Day was organised for Friday 25th March to help those whose lives have been devastated by the recent earthquake and tsunami.

Vouchers were on sale in school to exchange for permission not to wear school uniform for the day, plus two scoops at the ice cream parlour and, most important, entry to the Staff v Students Rounders Match on West Lawn. A Japanese meal was also on offer at just �1 for chicken teriyaki, sushi and noodles. Everyone was encouraged to wear red and white, and bandanas were on sale to boost funds.

The Rounders Match was hotly contested and there were one or two challenges to umpire Mrs Hooper�s decisions. In the end, it was the students who celebrated victory when the result was announced.
The day raised �900, of which �600 will go to ShelterBox to help families who no longer have a home after the tsunami and �300 will go to the Red Cross Appeal.

As a Round Square school, fundraising is part of community life at Cobham Hall. This term, girls have been selling home made cakes and washing cars to raise funds for their chosen charities. Kunika Kakuta raised �200 with a sponsored silence and next Thursday there will be a Round Square Easter Egg Hunt in the school grounds.
