Two Fenland primary schools have joined forces to raise as much money as they can for the Alzheimer’s Society.
A total of £848 was raised by sister schools, Tilney All Saints Primary and Anthony Curton Primary for the charity.
The schools chose the Alzheimer’s Society as their main focus for raising money last year and they’ve worked hard ever since to raise as much money as they could.
Anne Senior, executive head teacher, said: “The Alzheimer’s Society is a charity close to the hearts of some of our children who have elderly grandparents.
“By raising so much money, it gives them the feeling that they are helping their loved ones at a very difficult time of their lives.”

A cheque presentation was held after the pupil’s hard work – it was handed over to Jacky Phipps, a volunteer for the charity – where she thanked the children.

Jacky said: “This money provides cafes for sufferers of dementia and their carers and also workshops for carers to help those suffering the effects of the disease.
“I had no idea you’d raised so much money” said Jacky “I am so grateful to both schools. This means so much to us.”
