A former West Hatch High School Sixth Form student returned to the school to raise money for Beyond Ourselves.
Jack Harris left West Hatch last year and is now working as a trainee sales executive at BMW/MINI.
He had to complete a business challenge, similar to those seen on the BBC show The Apprentice, and raise money for the community-based charity Beyond Ourselves which is a partner with three community schools in Zambia and helps provide education, nutrition and medical care to orphans and vulnerable children in those communities.
Jack's efforts raised £124.23, in under two hours.
He said: “It was so nice to be back and so refreshing to see how generous the pupils and staff were. Their donations will help change children’s lives. I cannot thank you all enough."
