I blogged before about how my school had chosen Hand in Hand for Syria as one of three charities to raise money for during our Holme Grange School charity week. I was just on the school website and the total amount we raised was £2400! We had loads of fun doing a fancy-dress sponsored walk, a cake sale, and a football match. My school does this every year and choses a local, national, and international charity. I think that if every school did this it would be very helpful and make the world much better.
