An alternative school in Wisbech raised more than £110 when pupils held a coffee morning for Macmillan cancer charity.
Learners, staff and parents baked a wide variety of cakes and learners served tea and coffee in the social room to parents and guests.
Nick Morley, head of TBAP Octavia AP Academy School, said “ We were thrilled to welcome our parents and agency workers into our school.
“It was great to see so many parents supporting us to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.
“I am extremely proud of our young people who worked so hard to make today such a success.”
