Oakham School Art Scholars have been raising money for the LGBT Foundation through a charity art sale of their work.

Form 7 Art Scholars Yat Fei and Alex created designs which they made into Christmas cards, stickers and tote bags.

They then sold their products to pupils at the school.

Yat Fei said: "We managed to raise £220, however, we plan to do a few more sales with the left-over products this coming week.

"Even in the days following the event, many lower school pupils came up to Alex and me to say how much they loved the stickers.

"It was so heart-warming, and the event gave us a nice chance to interact with them."

Yat Fei added: "Being part of the Decem [the School's senior prefects] responsible for inclusivity, we want to further promote this inclusive atmosphere within the school, and we plan to do this by organising more interactive events with the younger years, like giving talks and Decem socials."

Teacher of Art Jess Gilbert said: "A huge well done to Yat Fei and Alex for their success with the sale.

"It was also wonderful to see the OSCA (Oakham School's Charity Association) reps volunteering to help cut out the stickers. A great team effort."
