Falcons superheroes raise over £3,000 for charity

Pupils at Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys recently participated in a 'funathalon', raising thousands of pounds for their charity of the year

In a bid to raise much-needed funds for Syria Relief, pupils at the Chiswick-based Falcons Pre-Preparatory School for Boys dressed up as their favourite superhero and competed in an energetic assault course. The boys were sponsored to complete the challenge as quickly as possible.

The amount raised on the day contributed to the school’s overall fundraising total which supports the House of Daraa, a school established to provide a safe space for orphaned children in Syria to play and learn. 

Headmaster, Andrew Forbes, commented: “The boys had a great amount of fun dressing up as their favourite superheroes to race around the assault course. We encourage our pupils to participate in charity initiatives throughout the year. It was heart-warming to see them raising money with such enthusiasm.”
