SCHOOL PUPILS RAISES ALMOST £200 FOR CHARITY BY GOING CRAZY WITH THEIR HAIR
Pupils and teachers at Harrogate’s Belmont Grosvenor School let their imaginations run wild when they organised a Crazy Hair Day to raise cash for charity.
The wax, gel, spray and colour were out in force as youngsters – and staff – at the co-educational prep school styled their hair in aid of Harrogate charity The Rainbow Fund.
The independent prep school, based at Swarcliffe Hall, Birstwith, aims to raise thousands of pounds during the year for The Rainbow Fund, which helps poorly, disabled and disadvantaged children.
The Harrogate-based charity, run by a group of parents who have been affected by prematurity, illness and life-limiting conditions in their children, has raised more than £160,000 since it was founded.
The Crazy Hair Day is the second fund-raising event held at Belmont Grosvenor School, which has so far raised more than £300 for The Rainbow Fund this year.
Other events planned include a sponsored walk, a Mother’s Day lunch and a fund-raising ball in the summer for parents.
Hannah Parker, charities co-ordinator at Belmont Grosvenor School, said the Crazy Hair Day had been a great success as all the children, from Pre-Reception to Year 6, had joined in.
“Our pupils voted unanimously to hold a Crazy Hair Day in aid of The Rainbow Fund – and on the day the children certainly didn’t disappoint!
“There was a fabulous array of crazy hairstyles from colourful, glittery creations to hair gelled masterpieces. Everyone at Belmont Grosvenor looked amazing and we are delighted with our fund-raising total to date for such a worthy cause,” said Miss Parker.
Chair of Belmont Grosvenor School’s PTA committee Emily Evans said: “It was such a fun and relevant way for BGS children to raise money. They had a great time – the idea proved to be a great success. ”
‘Outstanding’ and ‘Excellent’ Belmont Grosvenor School and its Magic Tree Nursery is set in 20-acres of grounds just three miles from the centre of Harrogate. For more information or to arrange a visit, contact www.belmontgrosvenor.co.uk or call 01423 771029.
