Generous pop hunk Robbie Williams has donated $90,000 (GBP50,000) to his old school.

The ANGELS singer hopes the cash will help ST MARGARET WARD CATHOLIC SCHOOL in Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, build an arts centre and encourage youngsters to become talented musicians and actors.

Unfortunately the former TAKE THAT star was busy in America, so his sister SALLY and mother JAN presented the cheque on his behalf earlier this week (begs28JUN04).

They read out a letter from the singer, which joked, "It is good to be missing school without detention, suspension or getting a telling-off from mum."
