PUPILS, staff and friends of Sheffield’s Parkwood Academy have raised an outstanding £25,000 plus for St Luke’s Hospice.

The Shirecliffe school has been an enthusiastic supporter of Sheffield’s only hospice for many years and has been fundraising since 2011.

And charity activities throughout 2018 have brought the total up to more than £25,000.

Teacher Paul Howard is the champion of fundraising at the school and in the local community.

And he joined pupils and fellow staff members as local residents were invited to the school for a free Christmas meal, served by students, as a special celebration to mark the fundraising milestone.

“We are overwhelmed at the level of support everybody at Parkwood Academy and in the Shirecliffe community have given to us,” said St Luke’s Community Fundraising Manager Megan Senior.

“Pupils, staff and friends have come up with ingenious ways of raising money over the years and that inspired approach has really worked.

“A total in excess of £25,000 really does make an enormous difference to the lives of all St Luke’s patients and their families.”
