Pulling together to send aid boxes
Staff and students at Glebelands School have raised over £850 to help with the relief appeal for Haiti.
The fundraising activities ranged from cake sales to collecting loose change at lunchtime and a staff coffee and crumpets break-time sale.
Olivia Treverton-Jones, who works in the school's Design Technology Department, produced Haiti Hearts key rings which could be bought and inscribed for Valentines Day.
A Year 7 student said “When we heard about the disastrous earthquake in Haiti, we decided to take drastic action."
"The heart breaking pictures of what happened made us realise how lucky we are and that we wanted to help the Haitian children have somewhere to stay.”
Cranleigh Rotary Club President Michael Hart the club's International Chairman, Patrick Leake, accepted the cheque from Glebelands for the purchase of a Shelterbox which provides a tent and equipment for 10 people.
The school is also filling an Aqua box with essential items for a disaster situation.
