Small price to pay for a capital school
The London-based Capital Radio is selling off London's landmarks, pubs, shops, schools and stations, to raise money for the Help a London Child charity. For pound;15, buyers can have their names attached to the secondary school of their choice on an interactive map. (Nelson's Column costs pound;50; Buckingham Palace pound;100.) "We wanted schools to be at a rate at which pupils and teachers can access them," said Tamsyn Clark, the charity's fundraising manager. "Your school is like Marmite: you either love it or hate it."
Successful buyers have added pithy comments on the website, next to their purchases. A former pupil of the pound;3,965-a-term Dulwich college says:
"I finally own the college, after all those school fees."www.londonlandgrab.com
