Staff and students at King’s Ely have raised more than £1,000 to help support poverty-stricken children and families in East Africa.
Hundreds came together on New Field after school on April 20 for Osfest – an annual fundraising extravaganza organised by students in Osmond House.
A host of activities and attractions were on offer including bouncy castles, a house tug-of-war competition, a coconut shy, sports challenges, ‘sponge the teacher’ and a wide variety of stalls and raffles.
All funds raised were in aid of Osmond House’s chosen charity of the year, Hope 4 Malawi.
Housemaster of Osmond House, Paul Lott, said: “Each ‘Osman’ was tasked with running a stall at this traditional summer fete. It was fantastic to see so many happy, smiley faces and each Osman using his talents to work as a team to put on such a huge event that was wonderfully attended.
