Talented students at Farnley Academy have donated hundreds of pounds to help improve end of life care and support arts education.

Sixth form students staged a charity talent contest, Farnley’s Got Talent featuring comedy and magic.

Pupils donated £800 to Wheatfields Hospice in Headingley and they raised a further £232 to support The Ann Maguire Educational Fund.

Year 13 student Emily Poole said: “As an academy, we hope that the money raised continues to support the dedicated work of the well-deserving charities and that each year Farnley’s Got Talent is able to help other local charities carry on their superb work in the community.”

Teacher Lorna Bradford said: “It was lovely for the students to be able to see where the money is going.

“It could pay for a nurse for a week and a half or could be used generally to improve palliative care.”
