Denstone College, Staffordshire, Upper Sixth pupil Megan Cappa organised a Summer Fair during the holidays to raise awareness and money for a charity that
is very close to her heart. Megan and her family had a huge amount of support from
Macmillan during her father’s treatment, support which is continuing after he sadly passed away.
The event, which was held at Denstone Village Hall, included a variety of stalls, raffles, tombola, refreshments and a visit from Ashmore’s ice cream.
The day was a huge success for Megan with £531 being raised
on the day and the amount still climbing. Megan has said she is extremely grateful for all those that attended and supported the event, allowing her to give back to a charity that has given her family so much support.

Cranleigh Preparatory School, Surrey, has a innovative new academic building opened in a ceremony led by former long-serving Chairman of Governors, Anthony Townsend.
The Townsend Building, situated at the heart of the School, houses a state-of the-art facility for design, art, sciences and food technology. Clad in timber that blends with the surrounding trees and green space, the building also has a viewing balcony perfect for watching cricket and other sports.
It was launched on Speech Day before crowds of pupils, parents and Old Cranleighans, who enjoyed tours of the new facility.
The celebrations brought mixed emotions as the day was also a
time to say farewell to current Headmaster, Michael Wilson, after ten years of service to the School. The Townsend Building was his brainchild and he worked closely with award-winning architects,
Tate Harmer and contractors Blue Forest to ensure its success in transforming the campus. Mike will not be leaving the Cranleigh Family of Schools as he takes the helm of Cranleigh Abu Dhabi in September. Incoming Headmaster of CPS, Neil Brooks, who joins from Fulham Prep Schools, was also present at the Townsend Building launch.
