YOUNGSTERS at a Bedlington school have helped raise more than a £1,200 for a cancer charity.

Bedlington West End First School pupils collected the money last week after holding an indoor event similar to a summer fair.

The £1,210 raised on the day will be donated to the Clic Sargent charity.

The Year 3 pupils took charge of the event and organised their own stalls.

The pupils arranged the day as part of the curriculum and had various stalls including hook a duck and various games.

Jonathan Smith, from the school, helped the children organise the event.

He said: “The children got a lot out of the day and realised the importance of charity and raising money.

“It was a great way to raise money for the charity and get all of the community involved.”

Clic Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families.

It provides clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help people cope with cancer and get the most out of life.

The charity gives support from diagnosis onwards with the aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment.
