Year 11 students from Chapel-en-le-Frith High School have raised £1,153, mainly through a sponsored walk, for the Teenage Cancer Trust which will help fund specialist cancer units for 12 to 24-year-olds.

The charity’s spokesperson, Kelly Scott thanked the students for their support and explained the impact their contributions will have on young people suffering from cancer.

Head of House Mark Jones, who organised the walk, said: “I am so proud of our students raising so much money for such a worthwhile charity.

“It’s good to know that their efforts will make a real difference to the lives of other young people. “

Headteacher Simon Grieves added: “The school has raised tens of thousands of pounds for the Teenage Cancer Trust since our first involvement with them in 1998; we look forward to many more years of working together to support young people.”
