A group of 15 sixth form pupils from Chancellorís school in Brookmans Park, have climbed Mount Snowdon to raise funds for Haven House Ė their local childrenís hospice.

The plucky students raised £1,343 from the challenge in Snowdonia; vital funds which will support the charityís work with life-limited children and families in East Hertfordshire, Essex and North and East London.

Talking about their climbing challenge, pupil Dylan Taylor explains; 'We wanted to support Haven House as it's a really deserving cause and the money will help to care for children in the local area.  What the nurses do there is an absolutely amazing thing, and we felt drawn to the dedication of the staff and needs of the children they care for.'

Mike Palfreman, Chief Executive of the Woodford Green hospice said; ĎWeíre seeing increasing numbers of schools and colleges taking part in challenges for Haven House and itís always inspiring to see local young people helping other, less fortunate youngsters.í
