Chigwell School staff took to the stage to raise money for charity in a version of Jack and the Beanstalk that contained the usual mix of slapstick comedy, audience participation and in-jokes that was greatly appreciated by the two packed houses. Sixth Form Drama scholars Immy Peck, Rosie Singha and Emma Jones bravely undertook to direct the twenty or so members of staff and, through ticket sales and the generosity of the audiences over £2000 was raised for Haven House and Smiles with Grace, both local charities.  Deputy Head David Gower who played the villain commented that it was amazing to see what could be achieved in such a short rehearsal period and was delighted with the amount of money raised.
