Students at an Ely school raised over £3,000 for a charity working to help people living in poor areas of South Africa.
Each year, the boys in Osmond House at King’s Ely Senior choose a different charity to support and over the last 12 months they have been fundraising for Hope 4 Malawi.
The charity is raising money for projects and trips where participants teach in schools, take assemblies and run conferences and children’s clubs.
The majority of the money raised was achieved at Osfest – the annual fundraising event organised by students in Osmond House.
Just before the end of term, a group of representatives from the charity visited King’s Ely to meet the boys of Osmond House, their housemaster Paul Lott, and to receive a cheque for £3,120.
The money means around 260 children will get to go to primary school in Malawi for a whole year.
The charity has also received hundreds of books from the school, which would have otherwise been recycled.
