TWO schools have joined forces to raise £1,500 for the Pakistani Flood Appeal.

Students from Fartown and Holmfirth High Schools joined forces to raise £1,500 for the Pakistani Flood Appeal coordinated by the Huddersfield Pakistani Community Alliance.

Fundraising efforts included cake stalls, games and other stalls by pupils as well as non uniform days.

The two schools have started work together in preparation for the launch of the new North Huddersfield Trust School in September this year.

The associate headteacher of the North Huddersfield Trust School, Mrs Janine Westmoreland said: “The children learned so much through working together for such an important cause and raised a fantastic amount of money in doing so.”

Mumtaz Ali from Huddersfield Pakistani Community Alliance and United Huddersfield said: “We are grateful to both schools for their efforts, these funds will go along way towards helping victims of the Flood Disaster in Pakistan.

“This is a long term need and we hope people can continue to support our appeal,” he added.
