The Year 9 students from Mayfield School on Pedley Road, created ‘Heroic Helpers’, a social action plan to help sick children in hospitals who were missing out on opportunities.

The Heroic Helpers created their social action plan after a leadership day at school, they then had to compete with schools across London to be in the final.

A spokeswoman from Mayfield School said: “Only a few select schools across London were chosen to be in the final.

“Hours of hard work whittled down to a two-minute video and their teacher, Mr Nichols sent it off in hopes to be awarded £1,500 to help children in hospitals.”

City Pitch is a programme designed to empower young Londoners to step up as leaders and make a difference in their community.
