A group of pupils at St Mary’s School in Henley raised £137 for the World Wildlife Fund. The children, aged five to nine, formed a club, the Secret Society of Nature, last term to learn about animals and share their research with each other during break time. Last week they organised a cake sale after school to raise enough money to sponsor an endangered animal through the WWF. They hoped to raise at least £36 to sponsor a snow leopard for a year but actually raised £122, allowing them to sponsor a Bengal tiger and a giant panda as well. Headmaster Rob Harmer said: “The enthusiasm and effort these children put in was wonderful to observe. I am very proud of them.” During the Christmas holidays, the club held a fair with games and competitions and raised £15 which was donated to the WWF’s campaign to save the rainforest.
