Joanne Tran, a parent at Trinity Primary School, has raised £150 for charity CLIC Sargent after holding a raffle for a giant teddy bear around the local mills.

Trinity primary has been staging fund-raising events for the CLIC throughout the year as they are helping six-year-old Cameron Jeffrey, a pupil at the school who is receiving treatment for leukaemia.

Acting head teacher Adam Lindsay said: “It has been fantastic to see not only the school, but the local community rallying behind Cameron as he continues to undergo treatment for leukaemia.

“To date the pupils and families have raised over £1,400 towards CLIC Sargent with more fund-raising challenges planned for the new year.

“CLIC have been supportive of Cameron and his family, particularly through the CLIC villa providing ‘home-from-home’ accommodation for them whilst he is involved in treatment.”

Miss Tran said: “Every little helps for charities especially at this time of year and this is such a good cause for Cameron. I lost my dad two years ago to cancer as well so I’m happy that the money is helping someone else.”
