CategoryCommunity|Fundraising|North London Hospice
Students from Friern Barnet School visited North London Hospice on Tuesday 9 February to present a cheque for £458.37.
The money was raised as part of the school’s Christmas fundraising efforts on ‘Mistletoe Day’, traditionally the last day of the winter term.
Students made their own donations and a group of 17 students spent the morning carol singing in North Finchley in support of North London Hospice, which is their charity of the year.
Nadia Joseph, Learning Mentor, who helped organise the carol singing, said, “Friern Barnet is a community school and it is really important for students and staff alike that we support and engage with our local community. It was great fun entertaining so many people and even better that we were able to raise money for such a worthy local cause. The students did a great job and we are really proud of them.”
Robin Langrishe, Director of Fundraising at North London Hospice, said “On behalf of North London Hospice, I would like to thank the students and teachers of Friern Barnet School for choosing us as their charity of the year and raising £458.37 for North London Hospice. It costs North London Hospice more than £8million each year to provide specialist care to our patients and their loved ones. We hugely rely on support from our local community to enable us to continue the vital work we do for our patients and families.”
