Pupils step back in time for fundraiser
by David Simister

KINDHEARTED fundraisers at one Lydiate school have managed to brew up more than £400 at a coffee morning they held last Friday (September 28).

Staff and students at St. Gregory's Catholic Primary School, on Sandy Lane, helped to make the event a success, with pupils donning Victorian costumes to give the day an added twist. The event was held in memory of Margaret Thorpe, who had been a secretary at the school for 19 years before losing a brave battle with cancer in July.

Mrs Deborah Albon, Headteacher said “It's so lovely to have the support of so many parents, friends and members of St. Gregory's Parish.

”Margaret would have been really proud to see so many people support this event at our school where she was loved by all. We're delighted to have raised so much money for Macmillan“.

After the event, the entire school gathered in the school's peace gardens, where Margaret's daughters, Lyndsey and Andrea, planted a tree in her memory.
