Two Gumley House students are planning to sleep rough this weekend to raise money for the tsunami victims and their families.

Moved by the many hundred's of thousands left homeless by this tragic natural disaster, Katy Bio and Danielle Jarvis, came up with the idea of sleeping rough on the Chiswick High Road in order to raise money. 

Chaperoned by their fathers, the two fourteen year olds will be on the pavement outside Our Lady of Grace Church from 2.00pm this Saturday 15th January until 2.00pm Sunday 16th January.  Monsignor James Curry, Parish Priest of Our Lady of Grace urged his parishioners to support the girls by giving as much as they can to add to the hundreds of pounds already pledged by local businesses.

Far from being apprehensive, Katy and Danielle are very excited about their fundraising efforts and are committed to raising as much money as possible.
