Chloe has spent months in and out of Addenbrooke’s Hospital where specialists have been nursing her back to health.

During her treatment Chloe bravely juggled part-time school with home tuition.

Now, however, she is well enough to return full time to New Road Primary at Whittlesey where they recently held the fund raising day to celebrate her return.

“She has shown such determination that we wanted to celebrate her achievement with an event that involved the whole school.”

Children dressed up in various styles including street dancers, cowboys hoe down, guitar legends and boa constrictors and spent a week rehearsing dance moves for the event.

Each group then showcased their routine to the rest of the school.

The dance raised £195 which will fund the work of a Macmillan nurse for the day.

The event was organised by teachers Mrs Marshall and Emily Hawk and tied in with a national fund raising dress up and dance day organised by Macmillan Cancer Support.
