Pupils at the Falcons Preparatory School for Boys brought Christmas spirit to Richmond station in aid of charity.

The school choir entertained passers-by on Wednesday, December 6, with renditions of seasonal songs outside the busy train station, in a bid to raise much-needed funds for a worthy cause.

During the choral service, the talented group of 60 boys from the school raised a grand total of £147.17 for the Wooden Spoon charity, voted for by parents as a charity to support.

Head of Music Katie Walton, said: “We were delighted to be spreading festive cheer throughout our local community, particularly for such a great cause too.

“The boys have worked incredibly hard preparing for their performance and they have represented the school admirably. We are very proud of the pupils for taking part and their inspiring fundraising efforts.”

The Wooden Spoon charity - inspired by an amusing gift to English rugby fans in Ireland after their humiliating 1983 Five Nations defeat - funds around 70 projects each year, supporting disadvantaged and disabled children.

In line with this, Falcons Preparatory School said it accommodates all of its pupils’ abilities and offers them choice and flexibility.
