A fun fundraising week saw students look back over years of show business.

Pupils at Kings Of Wessex Academy, in Cheddar, looked to raise hundreds of pounds for three charities: Sudden Unexplained Death of Epilepsy, Bristol Children’s Hospital and Avalon Camps before half-term.

The events took place during break and lunchtime which were made for a memorable week.

Boys braved a leg shaving and intrepid warriors waged war in a Raven-like show.

Two students and two maths teachers were ‘gunged’ with a mixture of spaghetti, flour, mushy peas and gherkins.
