STUDENTS of Doyle House, at Bohunt School, raised £1,500 for Action for ME after a busy year of fundraising including non-school uniform days and penny collections.

Chris Cundy, from the charity for people with myalgic encephalomyelitis, attended a Doyle House meeting and was presented with the cheque by students Alice and Ben.

Mr Cundy gave a brief presentation to students about the importance of research into the causes and treatments for ME and how the money raised may be used to support sufferers.

They got involved in fundraising for the charity when former student Suzy Tayler suffered with the condition while a pupil at the Liphook school.

Paul Barry, Doyle House’s achievement co-ordinator, said: “It is always nice to be able to present a cheque to Action for ME.

“Supporting the work of charities is an important part of the life of all of the houses at Bohunt and I am really proud of this achievement by Doyle House students for their work in raising money for such a worthy charity.”
