Students from Bacon's College took part in this year's Sleep Out
Students from Bacon’s College in south east London have raised more than £9,000 for Centrepoint.
The school for 11-18 year olds picked Centrepoint as the charity it wanted to support for its Christmas fundraising campaign in 2012.
Students participated in sponsored detentions and class cake sales through to a Spice Girls impersonation.
Twelve students from the sixth form and two teachers even took part in Centrepoint's Sleep out at Exchange Square, Broadgate, in November, led by the head girl and boy.
Centrepoint's relationship manager Martyn Paré-Hall, said: 'The students demonstrated an inspiring talent, determination, imagination, energy and commitment, in the true spirit of giving.
'Taking their inspiration from the story of Centrepoint young person, John, students recognised the plight of other young people like themselves, but are homeless and took this message to heart and out to their families and friends.'
Centrepoint is delighted to be supported by the college and its students.
