Students from Saffron Walden County High School raised the impressive sum of £11,200 over their annual Charities Week in December.

The events over the last three days of term included a ‘You’re Hired’ panel, talent shows, busking events and a raffle, with prizes donated by bands such as Arctic Monkeys and McBusted.

Individual feats included that by 13-year-old Year Eight County High student Eve-Liis Magiroos, who raised hundreds of pounds for The Little Princess Trust by cutting off her long hair.
