Pupils from Years 5 – 9 at Nottingham Girls’ High School along with members of staff, parents and organiser Mark Rolfe, braved freezing conditions on Sunday 11 December to do something magical.
The annual Christmas Busking event around the Bridlesmith Gate area of Nottingham City Centre is always a festive highlight of the School’s music calendar.
Santa hats and warm clothes were the order of the day as the girls enthusiastically performed a selection of Christmas favourites to the delight of shoppers and passers-by.
This was not only a fun day for all participants, who gladly give up their own time and at no cost to the school but also raised lots of money for charity.
Pupils at Nottingham Girls’ High School regularly raise substantial and impressive amounts of money for a variety of charities.
This particular festive event is always in order to raise money for PASIC – a Nottingham charity that provides emotional, financial and social support to families of children and young people with cancer, leukaemia and brain tumours.
PASIC has a very special place in the heart of the school and it’s always a poignant yet joyful event as pupils and staff remember and celebrate the life of a young pupil and friend lost to cancer 10 years ago.
On this bitterly cold day, the NGHS Christmas Buskers collected £782 for the charity, which is absolutely incredible and has made the school very proud. There is a JustGiving link at which additional money can still be donated if anybody would like to do so:
