The pupils from all 3 Highclare School sites were very proud to be able to present a cheque to former Aston Villa footballer, Stiliyan Petrov.
Pupils, parents and staff chose to raise money for Mr Petrov’s charity, The Stiliyan Petrov Foundation as their charity during the last academic year.
There were a variety of events from classroom cake sales to non-uniform days whilst a group of parents energetically organised a sponsored cycle ride from Highclare School to Paris. Parents and friends also organised a Charity Ball which was not only supported by the school but also by Aston Villa Football Club.
In total a cheque for £27,213.60 was handed over and in conjunction with Birmingham Children’s Hospital, the money will be used to help children and families who are suffering from Leukaemia and other cancer related conditions. Stiliyan used social media then to thank the school, saying “An amazing effort from Highclare School to support our mission. A massive thank you to you all”
Staff, parents and children representing all ages throughout the school came together to present the cheque in their regular Merit Assembly, celebrating the achievements of all the pupils.
