A school in Endon raised more than £6,000 after it hosted a row-a-thon to raise money for three separate charities.
Endon High School organised the event to raise funds for Kidsgrove-based dog rescue Greyhound Gap, a school in Nepal and an orphanage in Kenya.
Headteacher Alison Gibson chose these charities as the school have worked closely with the school and orphanage and the school’s maths teacher Paul Buttery works at the orphanage during school holidays.
The row-a-thon was organised so that all of the students could row for 15 minutes each and members of the school’s local church also got involved.
Pupil Josh Reynolds, 13, said that it was important to the students to raise money for the three charities as they have worked closely with all of them before and they wanted to help them.
“It’s been really fun doing this in the hall and we’ve raised a lot of money for them.”
