Year 8 Belmont Pupils raised a total of approximately £1,200 on Oti Day this week. They organised a range of stalls offering fun activities for the rest of the school to take part in during an extended break time.
The name Oti Day comes from a former pupil Sylvester Oti who died in February 1988 of sickle cell anaemia while he was a pupil at the school. A range of fundraising events take place throughout the year and part of the money raised always goes to the Sickle Cell Society. Other charities to receive a donation from this week’s Oti Day are NSPCC, the Red Cross and Goedgedacht Farm – Grow Peace in Africa.
