Students climb to new heights for Children in Need - November 2012

A group of students at Writhlington School raised a total of £310 for Children in Need last week. Students did a six hour sponsored climb on a climbing wall at Writhlington Sport Centre. The total amount raised was supported by the sale of homemade cakes and badges throughout the day.

In the 6 hours of climbing the pupils scaled the wall a total of 660 times, which is equivalent to climbing 5.4km. Joe Hobbs, Liam Nice, Liam Jones and Chloe Gale took it in turns to climb with additional support coming from James Lilley selling badges, Sammy Edwards selling cakes and Lurecia Deacon organising the climbs for other students.

Matt Shafto, teacher at Writhlington commented, “I am so proud of the 7 pupils that set this up and ran the event. They have worked really hard to make sure this was a success and it has definitely paid off.”
