Nottingham Girls’ High School buskers raise over £1,000 for charity

Pupils from the Junior School and Senior School at Nottingham Girls’ High School turned out on a rather wet and gloomy Saturday to bring some Christmas cheer to Nottingham city centre and raise money for charity along the way.

Joined by organiser, Mark Rolfe, and other staff members and supportive parents, the girls played, sang and danced their hearts out around the Bridlesmith Gate area. Appreciative and delighted shoppers stopped by to watch and listen to an array of Christmas favourites at this annual busking event.

Every year, the girls and staff happily give up their own time, and at no expense to the school, to take part in this very special and significant event.

The school regularly raises thousands of pounds for a variety of charities, and PASIC – a Nottingham charity that provides emotional, financial and social support to families of children and young people with cancer, leukaemia and brain tumours – holds a very special place in its heart.

It’s over 10 years now since the Junior pupils lost a dear friend to cancer, and they have been celebrating her life, honouring her name and memory ever since.

The total raised for PASIC count was £1,068.88. This is an incredible amount raised during three hours of dedicated busking. The school is very proud of this tradition and very grateful to all those who took part, and those who dug deep for charity.
