Lower School students at ACS Cobham International School were recently visited by three charity representatives after they raised over £1,500 for charitable causes. As part of their annual DUCK week (Developing, Understanding, Caring and Kindness), each year group decided on a different fundraising method, organising activities from discos and games, to face painting and volunteering. The six to nine year-olds selected Harrison’s Fund, a Cobham charity fighting duchenne muscular dystrophy; SPARKS, a children’s medical research charity; and the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation as their chosen charities. Following the students’ fundraising, representatives from each charity attended a specially planned assembly to talk about their charities and how the funds raised would help support their causes. Kathryn Firebrace, Lower School Assistant Principal, commented: “It was a fantastic week and the students had a wonderful time while learning about the importance of fundraising and the different charities they were supporting.”
