PUPILS and staff at a school have been thinking creatively to find new ways to raise money for charity.

Pupils from Bourne Academy presented a cheque for £533.82 to Carole and Rob Hughes, the founders of charity Anna’s Hope, on Friday. Anna’s Hope helps children and young people with brain tumours.

To raise the money the pupils have been making and selling cakes and cookies, ice cream and lollies.

They have also held five-a-side football tournaments.

Head of Mays House Sally Sutcliffe said the pupils voted for Anna’s Hope to benefit.

She said: “We asked Anna’s parents to come in and talk to the pupils, who were both saddened and inspired by Anna’s story.

“Over the past few months each tutor group has undertaken activities to raise money. We have even been selling lollies and ice cream in the rain.

“I only hope we can keep adding to this total.”
