Six students raised nearly £150 by dressing in their pyjamas during the recent mufti day. Students paid to wear their own clothes for the final day of last term, but the girls, all from 9T and 9K tutor groups, decided to don their nightwear for the whole day and got their friends and teachers to donate extra cash.
Now Jasmine McCool, Kaisie Flanaghan, Mia McCart, Jessica Bellew, Nicole Horth and Lily Rattigan will present Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a cheque for all the funds raised at a forthcoming assembly.
The Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) was established in October 2003 to provide an emergency medical service for a 2,000 square mile area comprising Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes. The service has 12 doctors, 12 paramedics and three pilots which serve around 1.1 million people. In the three years it has been operating from Coventry airport, it has flown over 5500 missions. With an ever-increasing callout rate of between 120 and 150 callouts per month, the WNAA is the busiest air ambulance in the UK.
