Pupils of a Grantham school raised £200 for St Barnabas Grantham Hospice through a choir service held at St Wulfram’s Church.

Three girls at Walton Girls’ High School were pleased to present the donation to hospice fund-raiser Janie McCormick on Tuesday.

St Barnabas, which provides support to adults living with life-limiting illnesses and their families, is Walton’s chosen school charity for 2017.

The choir service was held during the festive season and featured performances from their chamber choir as well as musical interludes from a number of music students.

The event was a resounding success and the pews were packed with members of the public joining parents, staff and governors.

Janie said: “We are incredibly grateful for every donation we receive. As a charity we need to raise £5.5million per year to continue the services we provide, and every donation really does help.”

Principal Caroline Saxelby added: “The Walton ethos encourages working with the local communities and our students take pride in the contributions they make.”
