Fundraising scores at Richard Hale Pupils and teachers at Richard Hale raised nearly £6,000 in a penalty shout-out competition against Watford Football Club coaches.
Pupils from the School each had five shots against six junior coaches from Watford FC’s community sports and education trust.
Present pupils were cheered on by Old Hertfordian Chez Isaac who is a current Watford FC player.
The competition was organised by the School’s Development Office, which is being funded by the Richard Hale Association. Funds raised from the competition have been shared between Watford’s community sports and education trust and the School.
Richard Hale’s share of proceeds will pay for new football goals to be erected and the balance will be allocated to the Richard hale Charitable Trust, a new charity established by the Richard Hale Association to support the School in the build up to the 400th anniversary of the School’s foundation in 2017.
