Music makers at Spalding High School donated £200 to Marie Curie Cancer Care in memory of a former head of music, Jennifer Chappell, who died last year.
The sum was raised from the school’s Christmas concerts and presented to Marie Curie by the current head of music, Lynne Loose, who had worked alongside Miss Chappell.
Pupils have been engaged in a big music festival, involving soloists and ensembles from its five houses, and the points tally put Nightingale top when the result was announced yesterday.
Mrs Loose said: “The standard is always very high, there’s always lots of enthusiasm and some really nice performances.
“It’s just about the enjoyment of making music really.
“It’s always competitive and the students come along and support their friends as well.”
