Dozens of students at a Morpeth school dressed up in colourful costumes for a walk in aid of a cancer charity.

Quite a few of those taking part in the activity, organised in honour of former pupil Nathan Curry, wore onesie outfits.

The contingent from Collingwood School and Media Arts College walked along Shields Road and Jobling Crescent before going around the school field.

More than £800 was raised for the North of England Children’s Cancer Research Fund.

Nathan, who had a brain tumour, died earlier this year and his mum, Keren, took part in the walk.

“We decided that doing a walk and giving students the opportunity to wear a onesie would be a fun way to raise money for the charity and we gave each student an envelope so they could return it with some money in,” said Collingwood teaching assistant Alison Jackson.
