Youngsters at a Fenland primary school have raised £400 to support cancer patients at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Tilney St Lawrence Community Primary School council members were inspired to organise a sponsored walk to support the Hospital’s Macmillan Cancer Care and Treatment Centre.
School council members Xavier Dennis, Riley Evans, Archie Lensen, Scarlett Lewis-Garnett and Harry Sandle arranged a walk around the school playground on June 29.
Some youngsters completed more than 30 laps of the circuit and were encouraged by members of the school council as they went along.
Teacher Helena said: “We have had an incredible response from all the children in school.

“The school council organised the walk really well and arranged a staggered start. Every time a child completed a circuit they were given a high five.”
School council members, along with Mrs Clarke and deputy headteacher Rose Ward, presented the money to Sister Jayne Miller.
