Pyjama day raises cash for Children in Need

Boys and girls in the Junior School raised over £700 for Children in Need by paying to come to class in pyjamas on Friday, while Senior School pupils donated their spare change to a “coin crest” to boost this year’s house charities total.

Our Junior School pupils started the day by learning exactly where the money they were raising would be going, with class 4T performing a special assembly about helping others and the kind of problems that some less fortunate children face.

Later on, the boys and girls and their teachers braved the cold and headed outside in their onesies, superhero pyjamas and – in Mr Milnes’s case – Elvis costumes for a quick photo in front of the school.

Over in the Senior School, pupils raised an extra £131.42 for this year’s house charities by taking their spare change along to the quad and recreating the Stockport Grammar crest in copper coins.

The total will be added to the thousands of pounds raised throughout the school year for our pupils’ nominated international, national and local causes: L’esperance Children’s Aid; Teenage Cancer Trust; the Christie; Help for Heroes; Macmillan Cancer Support and St Ann’s Hospice.
