A TEENAGER is passing on his school tuck shop after raising hundreds for charity.
Stamford School pupil Rob Forster, 16, from Ketton, set up a stall selling chocolate bars and fizzy drinks to classmates twice a week.
The tuck shop proved a great success and this year Rob was able to split £1,000 between four causes: Rutland Sailability, Stamford Foodbank, Stamford Street Pastors and The Autistic Society.
He also raised £500 last year, which he donated to Anna’s Hope.
Rob had £100 left over, which he gave to Year 10 pupils at the school to help take on the stall.
He said: “The shop was very popular and there was a high demand from pupils. I started in Year 10 and it worked well so the school let me continue.
“I chose two Year 10 boys to carry it on when I move up into sixthform and I think I have left it in good hands.”
