Nelson students gave up their time to raise money for a cause close to their hearts
A group of schoolchildren sacrificed their lunch-times and breaks to help raise money for Pendleside Hospice.
The year nine students from Marsden Heights Community College in Nelson raised the magnificent sum of £400 by holding a charity week just before Easter.
They organised a raffle for a hamper packed with goodies along with a giant Easter bunny. They held a tombola and also a Guess how many mini eggs in the jar game?
Students decided to donate the money to the hospice as it is very much part of the community where they live.
After raising £354 and headteacher Miss Littlewood made up the rest to £400.

"They did a fantastic job and should be really proud of themselves."
