A 15 year old Jewish student from Mill Hill’ School has raised over £2,000 by selling hot dogs, jellies, cakes and doughnuts in six weeks, after being given £10 in start-up capital.

Brandon Johnson led a young group of five boys who took up the Tenner Challenge, which saw them selling their wares at a Saracens rugby union match, before coming second in the national initiative.

When rugby bosses heard of why the boys were selling Dunkin Doughnuts at the stadium, they were invited onto the pitch at half-time, and were asked three sports questions, which yielded another £100 when Brandon got the questions right.

The pupils raised the money in memory of a two-year old boy named Joel, who died of cancer in January and whose subsequently family set up the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Charity.

Joel’s mother Melanie came from Bristol for a school ceremony in which the youngsters handed over a cheque for the hard-earned money. Joel’s grandmother, Sue Fenton, said: “They were beaten by an older group, who raised a little more, but their effort was superb.”
