Bucks Free Press: Students to give up mobiles for 24 hours Students to give up mobiles for 24 hours

STUDENTS are being urged to make the ultimate sacrifice for charity on Friday by giving up their mobile phones for 24 hours.

The Beaconsfield School in Wattleton Road, are challenging their students to raise money by handing their phones in for a day on Friday, June 27.

Students are being asked to give their mobiles to parents at 8am and only have them returned 24 hours later.

The person who raises the most money in each year group will receive house points, while the overall best fundraiser will receive a special prize.

There will also be a mufti-day at the school to help raise funds for the Stoke Association.

Good luck - I would be proud of my son if he could do this. I doubt he could give up his phone for 24 minutes! Let alone 24 hours.
And surely you mean Stroke Association, not Stoke Association. Most mobile phones would have been smart enough to correct that little error for you. ;-)

I bet most kids will want phones back after school hours and get parents to tell fibs.
What ever happened to the studies on damage to young brains and mobile phones, have they been conveniently forgotten?

Hope they've got St John's Ambulance on stand-by. My kids hyperventilate when the wi-fi goes down for longer than 15 minutes!

If they use them for voice calling then yes, there are some tenuous links with health problems of prolonged use of mobile phones. Thing is, they don't use them for calls. Texts, Whatsapp, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter. That's what they use them for. Voice calls are so outdated!
