PUPILS at a Bedlington school have raised more than £500 for sufferers of a rare brain condition at a special event in school.

Year 6 pupils at Bedlingtonshire Junior High School raised £510 for Corpal, a charity set up to support those with agensis of corpus callosum.

The youngsters chose the charity because their teacher Lisa Darbyshire’s daughter Ruby was born with the condition and they wanted to do something to help.

They sold raffle tickets and cakes, as well as holding a charity day including a disco, car-wash and a penalty shootout against school principal Kieran McGrane.

Lisa said: “The support from the children has been astounding.

“They have been very motivated and generous.

“I am very proud of them all.”
