Fowey students bag packing fundraiser for Leavers' Ball
Year 11 students from Fowey Community College gave up their Sunday morning lie-in to pack bags for shoppers in St Austell.
The pupils arrived at the Tesco store on March 3, keen to both assist shoppers, and raise vital funds for their Leavers' Ball due to take place in June.
The event was arranged by community relations manager, Natasha Spencer, following a letter sent by students to the store manager with the request to participate in a fundraising 'bag pack'.
Student, Abi Newton, 16, said: "This is a great way to raise money and Tesco customers have been very generous, which we really appreciate."

Although the Leavers' Ball is funded by the school, students decide to take on their own fundraising efforts to make the day a real big success.
This latest event is one of a number of similar fundraisers undertaken by students to ensure the cost of tickets to the June ball remains as low as possible and enables the whole year to attend the final farewell to school life, scheduled for Carlyon Bay Hotel.
Amber Key, Fowey Community College communications manager, said: "The bag pack has gone really well and the Tesco team has made us all really welcome. It has also been great to see so many teachers coming along to support us."
