Thanks very much!
Mrs Mary Glazzard of Oakes and Lindley Kirkwood Hospice Support Group received a bumper £400 cheque from Rastrick High School fifth-former Lynn Cartwright.
The school had raised more than £2,700 from events such as a nonuniform day, a ‘wet the teacher’ event, discos and a sponsored walk.
The school’s advisory forum — made up of pupils from all years, teachers and governors — chose to give £1,000 to charities and the rest towards a new school minibus.
Other charities receiving donations were Killingbeck Children’s Heart Fund (£200), Martin House Hospice (£200), Halifax Bodyscanner Appeal (£100) and Halifax RSPCA (£100).
