Oswestry School’s Interact group, along with Oswestry Rotarian and ex academic staff member Sue Leonard, presented a cheque for £1,418.19 to Charlotte Kendall, a representative of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Following the presentation Charlotte gave a talk to the pupils about ways the Trust supports young people with cancer. 7 teenagers are diagnosed with cancer every day and the funds raised by the Oswestry School pupils will help to pay for either 71 hours of tailored support by a TCT Youth Support Coordinator, 55 hours of vital nursing care from one of their dedicated nurses who understands what it is like to have cancer or it could just buy 42 console games.
Headmaster, Mr Julian Noad, said, “Our Interact group have made this impressive donation by hosting several events over one short term. I am proud to support the charitable works of our pupils and from an early age we instil the ethos that even small donations have the potential to drastically improve an individual's quality of life.”
