CLASSMATES at The Deepings School came up with a gesture of support for a student suffering from leukaemia.

They got involved in fundraising for a cancer charity, prompted by Year 7 pupil Hannah Montgomery, who has at times struggled to get into school because of her illness.

The pupils came up with their own fundraising ideas and raised almost £100 for the cancer charity Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. Fun activities included paying 50p to wear madly patterned socks, which raised £77, and Georgia Watson, in Year 8, raised over £20 by selling bracelets she and her sister had made.

7JHR, Hannah’s tutor group, then took over the fundraising with a cake sale at lunch and break times for a week and raised £37.

Finally, the whole school took part in a crazy ties day, bringing the fundraising total to a staggering £495.65, which was presented to the charity on Monday.
