Students have raised more than £500 after a five-hour-long dodgeball match.

Pupils at Rudolf Steiner School in Kings Langley (RSSKL) took part in the marathon contest to raise money for Sport Relief.

Sport Relief supports more than 2,000 projects, such as mental health services for children in the UK and those that treat malaria and other health issues in Africa. Active fundraising events are being organised this week by schools, businesses and individuals across the UK, all hoping to raise as much money as possible.

Tim Byford, principal of RSSKL said: “I’m very proud to be leading a school that has such charitable pupils who demonstrate such moral and social purpose, something we prioritise at RSSKL.

"Sport Relief’s work will help those who are less fortunate both in the UK and worldwide, and it’s wonderful to see a commitment from our pupils in contributing to this.”

Sport Relief began on March 17 and runs until this Friday.
