The fire broke out at Midfield School in July
Nearly two months on from a fire which devastated at an Orpington school, celebrities from the world of soaps, music and reality TV are taking to the field for a fundraising football match.
The blaze at Midfield School in July totally destroyed a school hut, which had been used as a central feature of outdoor learning for primary school students.
Such was the shock at the hut’s destruction, that pupils even took their hard-earned pocket money to school to help restore the Celtic hut.
Around £1,000 has been raised by parents, students and teachers to return the hut to its former glory.
And now EastEnders actor Jake Wood and The Only Way Is Essex’s Dan Osborne will be leading teams out at Welling FC’s ground to continue raising money for the school.
Fellow celebrities including Calum Best, Jeff Brazier, Antony Costa from Blue and Overtones’ Darren Everest and Mike Crawshaw are all set to play.
The match will take place on Sunday 25th September 2016
