Sixth formers at King Edward VI School in Morpeth were out in force on the coast in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

A total of 55 students and 16 staff walked from Blyth to Tynemouth – there was a fancy dress theme. The charity was chosen as it is supporting Year 12 pupil Fraser Garland, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in September.

Teacher Jonathan Graham said: “We’re grateful to everyone involved in the walk and those who have donated, including the people who bought the goodies that we were selling along the route. Over £3,000 has been raised so far.”
