Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate prides itself on its academic success, but there’s a lot more to the school than that. Every year the staff and students do lots of work for the local community and beyond, and a lot of that is driven by the Charity Committee.

In the last year staff and students have raised over £15000 for various charities for the local area, nationally and internationally.

How do they decided who to support and what to do to raise the money?

We went to meet members of the Charity Committee, alongside representatives from Knaresborough Rotary, Shelterbox and ABF, The Soliders' Charity, to find out about all the good being done.
