PUPILS from a Worcestershire school have raised more than £6,000 for children with cancer.

As part of the Cheeky monkey challenge, pupils at Hanley Castle High School held a fancy dress day with a theme of stage and screen.

Students also tried to cover each letter of the alphabet with costumes including Del Boy and Werewolves

The pupils raised £6,250 for Children with Cancer UK which helps research causes and treatments into cancer and tries to improve the quality of life for children who are suffering with the disease.

The latest fundraiser means the school has now raised a total of £12,053.73 for the charity in recent years.
