A Harpenden school raised more than £3,000 for charity during February with a tuck shop and a lip-sync battle.

St George’s School in Sun Lane kicked off their month of fundraising with Goddard House students selling tuck at break time. The tuck shop raised £400 each for two charities- the British Thyroid Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support.

As part of the Senior Prefects Day Of Fun (or SPDOF), senior prefects sold 300 tickets for their lip-sync battle, which featured Jackson 5, Abba, Spice Girls, McFly and One Direction medleys.

The event raised £2,525 for Harpenden Mencap, Unique, which supports people with rare chromosome disorders, and Mulemi Community School in Zambia.

Headmistress Helen Barton said: “I am extremely proud of all our pupils for their dedication and commitment to fundraising; this is clearly evident in their enthusiasm to support these worthy causes, although I’m sure the delicious tuck helps!”

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
