After totting up the tally, pupils from Charles Darwin School in Biggin Hill are delighted to reveal they raised almost £20,000 for charity in the last academic year.
On their return to school this week, students were told of the amazing amount - which exceeded last year’s efforts by £6,500.
Staff and pupils even took part in a ‘fire and ice walk’ which involved hot-footing it over glowing coals and broken glass.
Money will be split between local and national charities including Help for Heroes, Foal Farm and Demelza House.”
Deputy head Loiuse Rees said: “We have again been delighted by the students’ generosity and response to fundraising this year. “
