Warwick School pupils sleep out for charity

PUPILS at Warwick School boxed up for charity.

More than 100 boys slept in cardboard boxes to raise £3,000 for Leamington homeless charity Helping Hands.

The boys were challenged with building their own cardboard shelter, along other materials to make them as waterproof as possible.

Other activities included sports, a quiz and a late night chapel service which reflected on the work carried out by Helping Hands. Representatives from the organisation joined in the service with a thought-provoking message.

Soup was served by headmaster Deneal Smith before the boys settled into their boxes to brave the outdoor elements.

The rain held off giving the boys a dry night’s sleep under the stars before an early 4am rise.
