Loreto Preparatory School pupils raise money through a sponsored “wacky hair day”, a spelling bee competition, a business enterprise day and collections at plays and musicals

Loreto Preparatory School’s fundraisers have collected a record-breaking £9,271 in the last 12 months.

From a sponsored “wacky hair day” to a spelling bee competition, followed by a business enterprise day and collections at every musical and theatrical production, the girls and their families have surpassed all expectations.

The money will be donated to both local and overseas causes. Both the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust and the NSPCC will receive £3,000, while Cafod and the Albanian Children’s Breakfast Fund will be sent £2,000.

Headmistress Rosemary Hedger said: “I am constantly overwhelmed by the generosity of our parents and the inventiveness of the girls. It’s a stunning sum of money.”
