Students and staff at Barking’s Technical Skills Academy raised nearly £1,000 for Children in Need.
Throughout last week, teachers and pupils carried out a number of activities to raise money for the charity, including crazy golf, hairdressing, a photo booth and a gaming competition.
Media make-up students offered facepainting sessions, there was a dress down day, and catering students baked around 500 cakes to sell to staff and students.
A raffle organised by the childcare cohort raised the most money, but many agreed a pie-in-the-face stall was the highlight.
The week was organised by Jennifer Forster, a progress coach at the academy.
She said: “It was hectic and we managed to raise £942.58. All the students including English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) students, catering, hair & beauty, childcare, IT and business students contributed. It was a great team effort.
“Well done to all the students including the brave souls who took a splat for charity.”
