BIG-HEARTED pupils at Moons Moat First School have raised a bumper £181.30 for Redditch Nightstop.

The initiative came the school council, which is made up of two pupils from each year.

The students wanted to do something to help young people less fortunate than themselves.

Together with headteacher Sara Fisher and deputy head Carolyn Kelly they researched who they wanted to support and chose Redditch NIghtstop, a charity which works to prevent homelessness among young people.

The pupils got together and raised the money by doing a Valentine and Mothers Day sale, and the money raised will go into the Redditch Nightstop’s hardship fund.

Meanwhile further donations have come in from long time supporter TK Maxx in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.

In addition volunteers Charlotte Biddle and Donna Brookes organised a hamper raffle on the charity’s Facebook page, collected the money then paid it into the Nightstop account raising a huge £600.

A further seven hampers are in the pipeline and starting this weekend people will have the chance to win one and support the charity via its Facebook page.
