Last Friday LSI London Hampstead raised a fantastic £500 for Comic Relief, a charity working across the world to combat poverty and social injustice. Students and teachers came together to participate in a range of money making activities including the buying and selling of cakes in the school lounge and singing karaoke in front of the whole school. Some brave teachers even volunteered to have wet sponges thrown at them in an attempt to raise more money for the Comic Relief cause.
Every class played their part: Intermediate 3 sang a version of the Beatles song ‘Ob la di ob la da’, and an Upper-Intermediate group were sponsored to wear their pyjamas to school, making an impressive total of £92 in sponsor money in the process.
School director, Greg Wickline, praised the efforts of the staff and students “Everybody put a lot of work into making the day a really special one. Not only did we manage to make a lot of money for charity, but we also had a good laugh!”
