Students taking part in fundraising Readathon
Students at West Hatch High School, Chigwell, are taking part in a sponsored Readathon to raise money for various charities.
The fundraising challenge, launched on World Book Day, was offered to all Year 7 and 8 students.
Each participating pupil is being sponsored for each book they read with the money raised going to Roald Dahlâ€™s Marvellous Childrenâ€™s Charity, Together for Short Lives and CLIC Sargent charity for children with cancer.
Year 7 student Ellie Randall said: â€œIâ€™m really enjoying taking part in the Readathon and think the charities are great causes.â€
Fellow Year 7 student Nicole Goldberg said: â€œI like doing the Readathon because the money raised is going to support children in hospital.â€
