Perryfield’s High School raises £500 for SWBH Charity

Perryfield’s High School in the West Midlands have raised a fantastic total of  £500 for the SWBH Charity through a number of fundraising events including a cake sale, a dance show and an all-time student’s favourite- a non-uniform day in honour of one of their favourite teachers.

Teacher Graham Newson, along with his wife, colleague Di Green and two smartly dressed students paid a visit to City Hospital this week to hand over the cheque which will help support the Oncology department. Graham who is an Oncology patient at SWBH said he was ‘delighted with the amount raised and that the support of the school was outstanding’.

A total of 1,200 students got involved with the fundraising events in support of their teacher, and the cake sale which went down a storm helped to raise most of the £500. There was something for everyone to get involved with throughout the weeks of fundraising and the fantastic amount raised goes to show what a caring school they are.

Carly Jones, Head of Fundraising for the SWBH Charity said:

“We’re thrilled Perryfield’s High School chose to support the SWBH Charity. Their generosity in donating the proceeds from their fundraising events to us is truly fantastic; it will go a long way to helping us improve the experience of our patients in the City Oncology department. We can’t thank them enough.”
