Business brains turn fivers into hospice cash

Worcester Editorial 15th May, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

BUSINESS minded pupils used their entrepreneurial skills to raise more than a thousand pounds for St Richard’s Hospice.

The Year Eight students at St Mary’s School took part in the Flourishing Fivers scheme where they were asked to turn £5 into as much money as they could.

The group of 19 raised a total of £1,100 through a number of fund-raising ideas including sponsored events, cake sales and a Christmas bazaar.

Lizzie Brazier, St Richard’s fund-raiser, said: “This is a fantastic amount for the  pupils to have raised.

“They obviously put a lot of thought and energy into the project and are showing themselves to be the entrepreneurs of the future.

“We are very grateful for the donation which will make a big difference helping us to care for our patients and families.”
