SCRUM-PTIOUS fund-raising challenges have seen students hand over more than £200 for charity.

Year 12 and 13 students at Morpeth’s King Edward VI School (KEVI) organised a seven-a-side rugby match and bake sale in aid of Henry Dancer Days, the chosen charity of Morpeth Mayor Joan Tebbutt.

The fund supports families through osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer found mainly in teenagers.

Around 25 pupils took part in the fund-raising, collecting £214.56.

Further events planned for the charity include concerts by Werca’s Folk and the Northumberland Fusiliers Brass Band, a tea party with Bagpuss and a golf tournament at Longhirst Golf Club.
