Students slam dunk teachers 29-4 in Charity Basketball Challenge

    Teaching staff saw the funny side when students netted an impressive win at Denbigh School’s Comic Relief and Care charity Basketball Challenge.

    A total of over £1200 was raised in ticket sales, three sweepstakes and by students participating in non-school uniform day.

    Comic Relief will benefit from half of the money, with the other half being given to CARE, an international charity that supports women and girls to overcome inequality and fulfil their full potential.

    Impressed with the amount of money raised, Headteacher Andy Squires said “Students on Denbigh’s School Council voted for the charities to support and, although the School has donated to Comic Relief in the past, this is the first time students have chosen Care. The charity empowers girls around the world by helping them receive an education, a cause the students found very worthwhile."

    “Denbigh students and staff never fail to rise to the occasion when it comes to raising money for good causes and this time was no exception.”
