Astley pupils button it up for charity

STUDENTS at a Seaton Delaval school were seen but not heard doing good deeds which raised more than £300 for charity.

Year 10 pupils at Astley High School raised £330 for the NSPCC by holding a sponsored silence and selling wristbands and badges.

Assistant head of the year group, Francesca Gannon, said: “I am so proud of what they have all achieved.

“The money raised will make a huge difference to some children.”

Lisa Jones, a spokesperson for the NSPCC, said: “The money that the Astley students have raised will mean that the NSPCC can continue its work to help and protect vulnerable children in the local community.

“I personally can not think of a better gift that they could have made.”
