Year 11 students from Chapel-en-le-Frith welcomed national charity The Teenage Cancer Trust into school last week to present them with a cheque for £3452. The money, raised largely from a sponsored walk involving almost all of the year group, will go to support the funding of specialist cancer units for 12 to 24-year-olds.
Accepting the cheque on the charity's behalf, Teenage Cancer Trust Education and Awareness manager, Kelly Scott said: "As a charity which relies upon fundraising in order to continue our work helping young people fight cancer, we are delighted to accept this donation from Chapel-en-le-Frith High School. We cannot thank the pupils enough for their hard work and support."
Headteacher Simon Grieves added “we are always delighted to support a worthy cause like the Teenage Cancer Trust which does so much good work. The school has raised tens of thousands of pounds for the Trust since our first involvement with them in 1998; we look forward to many more years of working together to support young people.”
