East London Science School pupils raise £1,800 for London’s Air Ambulance
Pupils from the East London Science School have helped to raise £1,800 for London’s Air Ambulance.
The Year 10s raised the money during the school’s enrichment fortnight last year, where they went out in fundraising teams across east London to raise money for the charity.
Last week, the pupils handed over the cheque to anaesthetic consultant Dr John Chatterjee, who told the pupils what an important contribution they had made.
“Your fundraising meant that my team could come to the assistance of patients like the young boy we saw the other day who had been hit by a car,” he said. “We were able to save his life.”
Head of Year 10, Richard Woolfenden, added: “Many of the students were taken back by the warm response of members of the public from East Ham market to Canary Wharf.
