Three Rivers Academy raise an amazing £5,620!

10th December 2019

Students from Three Rivers Academy in Hersham, Surrey, have raised an incredible £5,620 for Music in Hospitals & Care.

The school choose a Charity of the Year and then Charity Champions from each house arrange fundraising activities. Eddie from Year 9 spoke to us about the achievement:

How do you decide which charity to fundraise for each year? Why did you pick Music in Hospitals & Care?

Heads of houses picked four local charities and each tutor voted for their favourite. MiHC got the most votes, I think because many people thought it would be nice to provide entertainment for people suffering and make their day nicer.

Tell us a bit about some of the activities you have done to fundraise for Music in Hospitals & Care.

Different houses chose to do different things including selling refreshments on sports day, selling cakes and selling t-shirts as well as a non-uniform day.

How does it feel to know you have raised such an amazing amount of money for charity?

I feel very proud to be a part of the effort for raising money for Music in Hospitals & Care.


A big thank you to everyone involved, the money raised will help bring Joy Through Live Music to people in healthcare across the UK.
