A group of Year 8 students at Liskeard School & Community College have presented Children’s Hospice South West with a cheque worth over £140, raised through sales of their own home-made keyrings.

Each tutor group at Liskeard had been set the challenge of starting a Community Project, and Mr. Hurdwell’s 8S group decided to raise money for Children's Hospice South West. The students decided on this charity as a tutee’s niece had sadly passed away due to spinal muscular atrophy.

However, in her last few months, she and her family were able to spend time at the Little Harbour retreat in Porthpean, run by CHSW. As a result, 8S wanted to thank the charity by choosing them as the beneficiaries of their project.

The group decided to design, create and sell their own key chains, and who better to help them with this than their tutor, Mr Hurdwell, who is a Technology Teacher!

All tutees were tasked with working on a design, with the group deciding to use Kelsey Olver’s creation on the final product.

Mr. Hurdwell, along with a couple of students then printed out the key chains in order to sell them to family and friends. The tutor group were able to raise £140.92, and presented a cheque to CHSW in Tuesday's assembly.

Mr. Hurdwell was delighted with the group’s efforts.

“I am so proud of my Year 8 tutor group for raising such a great amount. They all worked so hard, from designing and making the key rings, to getting out and selling as many as they could. They are a credit to Liskeard School & Community College and to their year group. We have many more ideas to continue to raise money for the Children’s Hospice and we can’t wait to get started!” he said.
