Sixth Form students at Attleborough Academy have raised hundreds for The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Fundraisers including sports day stalls and non-uniform days helped students raise £580 for the charity.

Morwenna McNeill, education and awareness executive at the Teenage Cancer Trust, visited the sixth form to receive the cheque and give a presentation detailing the work of the charity.

The fundraising was organised by the sixth form student body, the Presidential team.

Lead president, Keziah Collier, said: 'As sixth form students at Attleborough Academy we recognise the importance of coming together to support charities and giving back to the community.

'The Teenage Cancer Trust provide excellent care for teenagers and save lives through educating about cancer. We were excited to raise money for such a worthwhile charity.'
