AN inaugural charity gala held by ACS International Schools raised £64,000 to help more young people win places at its Cobham, Egham and Hillingdon sites.

Almost 350 parents and alumni attended the gala at London’s Guildhall.

Funds raised will support bursaries and scholarships for students who would otherwise be unable to attend.

The evening’s entertainment included Hillingdon alumnus Moji Ohunbanjo, who gave a rousing saxophone performance.
