Lianne said: "I received over 50 cards from my students, ranging from the age of two through to adults.

" We chose to split them between the patients on the Hyndburn ward at Pendleview mental health unit at the Royal Blackburn Hospital and the residents at Andrew Smith House nursing and residential home in Nelson."
