A group of sixth formers at Derby’s Merrill Academy, led by Sports student Maitham Rashid, have raised £1,020 in just a week which will be divided between two charities that support people in need across the world.

Maitham (17) was inspired to organise the fund raising events by the ethos of Ramadan and rallied his peers to support his efforts – organising a leg wax for four male teachers, a non uniform day and a cake sale. The money raised has been divided between Nottingham-based charity Muslim Hands to build three wells and the Penny Appeal to sponsor three orphans with foster homes and a school education for a year.
