Space hopper fun for charity

Underne House raised just over £150 for charity with three days of space hopper races.

Boys from Years 7-10 took part in the first two days’ races in the gym, with Tom Selek, of Year 7, winning the Year 7 and 8 races and Stuart Tang, of Year 9, triumphing among the Year 9s and 10s.

The teachers’ competition took place in the Shearly Hall – the first charity event in the new building to be allowed by the Headmaster. Organisers unleashed the hall’s new sound system, with some energetic music adding to the lively atmosphere. House Co-ordinator Will Beaumont won the teachers’ event.

“We chose space hopper races as it was an original, innovative idea which diverged from common events such as volleyball and football,” said Shahil Mehta, House Captain of Underne.

The £152.59 raised goes to Community Link Up, a registered charity which supports and promotes friendships between people with a Learning Disability and others in the Harrow community (
