Pennies have turned into pounds thanks to generous pupils at Burnley's Blessed Trinity RC College.

Students collected 10 pence pieces for the brain tumour charity HeadSmart after a representative spoke to them about the work it does.

The children learned about the signs and symptoms of brain tumours in babies, children and teenagers and how early diagnosis is important.
