The life-saving support given by a children’s charity to a local student has prompted a week of fundraising activities at her school.
Roundwood Park School in Harpenden held a charity activity week to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), which helped care for Year 8 pupil Molly Goodchild after she was involved in a serious car accident before Christmas.
Roundwood’s Cadbury House organised the week of events, which included cake sales, a big carnival, life size hungry hippos and a fancy dress finale on Friday (13).
The money made will also go towards Little Angels, another children’s charity which helpd the seriously sick and terminally ill.
Head of Cadbury House, Kate Barron, helped organise the week, but said it was the students who were the stars.

Kate said that the accident had really affected the students and they wanted to do something to show that they were thinking of Molly.

“She’s incredibly brave and she’s under special care. I believe she’s now in a specialist unit, but comes home at weekends.”
The fundraising doesn’t stop there. Following two skydives, Kate has decided to “up her game” and take on the wing walk- which will see her attached to the outside of the plane while flying.
“I’m pretty terrified,” she added.
