Pupils from key stage two at Beauchamp Middle School welcomed Peter Hadfield, chairman of Hospital Radio Bedford, to their assembly to hand over a cheque for £355.
The funds were raised by all pupils during the school’s Easter non-uniform day which help raise money for their school as well as charities.
Laurence and Sabira presented the cheque which will help secure studio equipment to enable continued broadcasting to patients.
Assistant headteacher, Michael Redmond said: “It’s very important at Beauchamp for the children to help charities, particularly those in our community. The children really enjoyed Peter coming into school to share his experiences of radio and look forward to the possibility of working with Hospital Radio Bedford again.” Visit www.beauchampschool.co.uk and www.hospitalradiobedford.org.uk
