Queen’s Park Community School pupils raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust
Kind-hearted students have held a sponsored car wash, cake sales and football tournament
Children from Queen’s Park Community School have had a busy couple of weeks raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
With their teachers’ help, the pupils have organised a sponsored car wash, cake sales, football tournaments, sponsored silences, sponsored teddy bear carrying, tombolas, a raffle and a talent show.
So far they have raised more than �300 and there are still lots of events taking place.
Sue Gordine, head of year seven at the school, in Aylestone Avenue, Queen’s Park, said: “Each year group in the school has a nominated charity.

“I was inspired to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust (CFT) because my son’s very best friend has CF and I have just started to get a sense of how important the work that the CFT does is.”
The CFT also supports the UK Gene Therapy Consortium, which has just confirmed it has enough funding to begin a groundbreaking gene therapy treatment trial.
