Portsmouth High School GDST Head Girl team raise £10k for Stop Domestic Abuse

8 May 2024

Portsmouth High School Head Girl team have raised in excess of £10k for local charity, Stop Domestic Abuse.

Mrs Claire Lambon, CEO of the charity and an alumna of Portsmouth High School, received the cheque for £10,000.75 and said:

‘We were delighted to have been chosen as the Head Girl team’s charity and are amazed at the phenomenal amount the pupils have raised.

‘The Head Girl team have worked so hard to raise just over £10k and this is particularly poignant for me coming from a school that gave me so many opportunities. This huge amount to be given to Stop Domestic Abuse; a charity to help adults and children affected by domestic abuse seek opportunities for safety and security themselves, is wonderful.’

The Head Girl team spearheaded fundraising activities throughout the year to generate money and raise awareness of the charity.

Head Girl, Priyanka, 18, said:

‘Today, as we handover this cheque to Stop Domestic Abuse, I am proud of the collective generosity of all members of the school in supporting our fundraising efforts over the last year. I look forward to seeing where this money goes, and strongly hope that it makes a tangible difference.’
