Staff and pupils at Gosberton Acadey went to great pains to raise money for a charity close to their hearts.

They donated a week to raising more than £700 for Children with Cancer and Ward C2 at Addenbrooke’s Hospital Charity because pupil Ethan Devaney’s four-year-old brother Lucas has cancer.

Lucas will also be joining his brother at the school this year and he went along with mum Joanna to watch teaching assistant Giles Favell have his legs waxed.

Children paid £1 for a wax strip and this alone raised more than £100.

The first strip was auctioned and was won for £20 by Seth Marshall.

Also during the week two members of staff, Lorraine Horness and Louise Poutney, did a skydive, there was a danceathon, where children had to dance whenever they heard music, and a super hero non uniform day.

Staff member Samantha Newark said: “It was a fantastic week of fundraising.

“We volunteered Giles for the leg wax and he said it didn’t hurt.

“We know we have raised more than £700 but we haven’t got the exact figure yet.”
