Enterprising students at Tupton Hall School used fairy cakes, football and fancy dress to raise a whopping £1,812 for charity.

The cash was generated during Children In Need week for Chesterfield charity Fairplay. Fairplay provides services for children and young people with physical, sensory, learning and behavioural needs – and their families – across North Derbyshire.

The student committee at Tupton Hall Sixth Form recently visited the purpose built Fairplay centre.

“We visited Fairplay and saw what a remarkable job they do to support children with disabilities and their families,” said Adam Hardy, chairman of the Sixth Form Committee.

“I was inspired to get the whole on board in raising money so they can continue their exceptional work. The work they do, day in day out, is awe inspiring.”

‘Fairplay Week’ at Tupton Hall School was organised by the Sixth Form Committee and was packed full of heated competition.
