There was sweet reward for students in Cadbury House at a secondary school when a charity week raised £1,000.
Each house runs a separate charity week at Roundwood Park School in Harpenden and this year Cadbury House chose to raise money for Angels Support Group.
Based in Letchworth, it supports parents and carers of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Autistic Spectrum Condition but its faces closure as its funding is due to run out later this year.
Among those in Herts it supports is a Roundwood Park student.
During the charity week, each year group in Cadbury House ran a popular cake sale on a different day. Other activities included guess the weight of the hamper, egg roulette, movie and popcorn at lunch time and a lucky dip.
On the final day students were invited to dress up in line with the theme of Kids TV and Film. Along with a Maleficent, devised by head of Cadbury House Kate Barron at the suggestion of her seven-year-old twins, there was an Eeyore, Dr Who, Minions, a Power Ranger and a Teletubby.
The winning costume, Stephanie from Lazy Town, was created from an old pillow case.
Kate said: “We raised £1,000 which is an incredible amount, I’m so proud of all the students who worked so hard.”
She made special mention of house captains Emma Duncombe and Stanley Green for their tireless efforts to raise as much money as possible. She added: “They really were incredible.”
