Claremont Senior School organised and led an energetic 24 hour sponsored workout to raise funds for Pestalozzi International Village Trust.

Staff and pupils from Claremont and Pestalozzi took part in the event which began at 9am last Friday morning (February 26) ending at 9am on Saturday. Activities included a cross country run around Bodiam Castle, chess, bench ball, cricket, dog walking, drama games, netball and various other traditional and modified sporting activities.

To date, with money still coming in, over £3,000 has been raised.

Pestalozzi fundraising officer James Bacon says the event was a wonderful opportunity for students and staff from both educational organisations to work together in a supportive and fun atmosphere for 24 hours, adding: “I thank Claremont for their amazing fundraising efforts and look forward to future collaborative events.”

Ed Dickie, Deputy Head, Claremont Senior School, who participated in the challenge, says the 24 hour workout gave an opportunity to raise significant funds for an important and worthwhile cause and allowed students to interact with a group of inspiring young people from around the world.

“We look forward to many more such opportunities in the future as Claremont continues to build a strong relationship with Pestalozzi,” he said.
