SHEPTON friends Jay Conder and Ben Cox took part in sponsored silence last week to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
One of the Whitstone pupils’ friends recently lost a relative to cancer and the boys wanted to do something to help.
Jay’s mum Kelly said: ‘‘Anyone that knows Jay will know that he struggles to be quiet for 24 minutes let alone 24 hours, so together with his best friend, you can never get a word in.
“So it was a real challenge for both the boys, but we are very proud to say that they completed the challenge and between them they raised £140. Well done boys.’‘
