School Raises Over £24,000 For Charity
Solihull School Community helped raise over £24,000 for charity last term.
Pupils have taken part in a variety of different activities to help raise funds, from putting on performances during Junior School’s charity week, to wearing slippers to school for the day.
Some of the charities receiving their share of the £24,318.85 include Age UK Solihull, LAFF and the Brain Tumour Charity.
