LONGSANDS pupils are celebrating after year eight pupils collected £1,100 this year for Starlight and Clic Sargent charities.
In January 2006, they gave £150 to each of these charities and at their year eight assembly last week, December 5, they handed over another £400 to each charity.
These particular charities were chosen as some pupils in the year have personal contact with families affected by childhood cancer.
Each tutor group thought of original methods to collect money, including pushing smarties across a path with your nose and welly throwing.
Throughout the year the students are involved in fundraising for their chosen charities.
The school is presenting Snow White as its Christmas play this year.
