PUPILS from Scalby School didn’t get too tied up during a charity fund-raiser after using their uniform to boost its coffers.

The Year Ten students raised £608 for Help for Heroes thanks to a partnership with Scarborough outfitters Rumours who are giving £1 for every school tie sold to the charity.

Sue Cammish, the school’s Year Ten Learning Manager, said: “Each of the students have been given a small plastic milk bottle to fill with change and already many have come back full and the students have asked for another one.

“I invited staff from Rumours to an special assembly to present the charity with a cheque from the sale of ties.

“We were really pleased Steve McNamara from Help for Heroes was able to speak to the students about the work of the charity.

“He has two sons serving in the army, one of whom was injured, and the students were very respectful and understanding and I was really pleased at their reaction.”
