Many groups took up the challenge and doing so raised £950!
Pupils put charity work in the frame
Students from St Lawrence Academy are in the frame after raising more than £900 for people affected by cancer.
The talented bunch produced a number of professional short films for a national Radiowaves competition sponsored by the Red Cross.

Radiowaves is a network of free school websites where pupils can broadcast their own videos, podcasts and blogs.
Haania Amir, 15, said: "I really enjoy video production and find learning all of the filming and editing techniques really interesting.
"For the competition, we all had to produce a short film discussing the pros and cons of using robots in wars, which was a challenging subject."
The academy is now offering an after school film-making course to students and their families, starting on Monday, October 31, from 4.30pm to 6pm. To enrol, call Helen Parker on 01724 842447.
