A group of hardworking students have dressed up as mascots and prepared 10,000 Christmas newsletters in support of a worthy children’s charity.

Emily Dixon, Jack Naden, Laura Isaac, Reiss McCann (pictured left to right with Rachel Brooke from the charity) and Natasha Flanaghan have gone beyond the call of duty for the Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal.

The group are sixth form students from the David Young Community Academy, in Seacroft, and are working to develop their community and servant leadership skills to gain their IB Diploma or Career Certificate.

Rachel Brooke, fundraising coordinator for the appeal, said: “They have taken part in bucket collections, dressed up as our mascot Mr Ted, they’ve stuffed and stickered 10,000 Christmas newsletters, had a sale both in the hospital and at school, cleared up our stockroom and are playing elves assisting in sending out letters from Santa.”

The academy is hosting a sixth form open evening on January 8 from 6.30pm. Visit www.dyca.org.uk for further information.
