Students at the Springwood High School in Gaywood have been thanked for their support of a West Norfolk charity.
A cheque for £126.04 was presented to the borough’s MIND branch during the school’s annual volunteers fair on Thursday.
The cash was raised during pancake races held in February and Zena Penty, West Norfolk MIND’s volunteer co-ordinator, presented pancake trophy frying pans to some of the students who are looking to raise cash for them over the coming year.
Now in its third year, the fair is designed to encourage the school’s new sixth form students to take on volunteering work in addition to their studies.
Mrs Penty said: “The fair is always busy and we had 10 students interested in work placements and even more keen to be involved in fundraising.
“I’m looking forward to some inspirational and unusual ideas which often come from young people.”
