The fundraiser - which will feature all Year 7 students - has been set up in league with Giving Nation; an organisation that helps teenager to get involved with charity events.

The cross country event will take place over the course of Tuesday, May 19 and Wednesday, May 20 and it is hoped hundreds of pounds will be raised for the charities.

Mrs Allen said: "We have organised the whole event in just three weeks and I am very proud of the students who have shown a real talent for it."

The students have made all the arrangements - from deciding which charities to support to coming up with the fundraising schemes.

Student Stefan Szfranski said: "This is the first fundraising event I have ever been involved in and it was really great to have had a direct involvement in organising the event."

The total figure raised will be posted on the website in the coming weeks.
