Students at King Alfred School in Hampsted, put their entrepreneurial talents to the test by turning £5 into £1,440 for North London Hospice. Year 8 Students took part the North London Hospice’s ‘High Five Challenge’ in December, a fundraising activity to encourage teamwork, initiative, and create a meaningful link between students and their local community hospice. Students raised money by coming up with an array of innovative fundraising activities such as selling toast and hot chocolate, making a horror film and holding a film screening, running 11 miles in return for sponsorship.


Lynne Sasson, drama teacher and community action co-ordinator at King Alfred said: “The High Five Challenge is an enormously rewarding project. The pupils loved working together and coming up with interesting and innovative ideas to grow their £5. It allowed them to test their communication and business skills and have fun whilst they were at it. I highly recommend this fundraising opportunity to anyone, it is quite amazing how quickly the money can grow and be put towards an important cause.”
