Superheroes in our junior school raised nearly £500 on Key 103’s Cash for Kids day for Stockport’s Beechwood Cancer Care Centre.
The children (and their teachers!) all made a small donation so that they could come to school dressed as their favourite comic book characters.
Thank you to everyone who helped us raise the total towards Key 103’s £100,000 target.

Raising money for cancer charities
Supporting Cash for Kids is one of four ways our pupils and staff have supported cancer charities in the last few weeks.
Little Princess Trust: marathon and haircuts
Mr Wheeler’s run inspired year five pupils Talia Zelhof and Lily Amet to donate their hair to the charity who provide real wigs to children who lose their hair through cancer treatment.
Talia and Lily also collected sponsorships for their haircuts, raising an amazing £1,145 for the trust.
Teenage Cancer Trust and Marie Curie cancer care
Head of middle school Mrs Jackie Smith led a team of staff runners who raised £600 for the Teenage Cancer Trust by competing in the Great Manchester Run.
Marie Curie also benefited from our staff sportspeople after Ms Kristy Franklin, Ms Jo Pepper and a team of teachers swam 25k in the school pool to raise nearly £525 for the charity.
