A 12-year-old from March has won an award for helping to raise £2,000.
Rosetta Schauenburg-Kent won Neale-Wade Academy’s contribution to the local community trophy for her “desire and determination to give back to the local community and the Macmillan Cancer Support charity”.
An avid swimmer, the Year Seven student led 20 fellow pupils in completing a swim challenge that saw them cover a distance equivalent to the French Channel in just two hours.
She also challenged the rest of her year group to walk the same amount of miles from March to Paris. In total the fundraising amounted to an impressive £2,000.
Nicola said: “It was a privilege to meet Rosetta - we were honoured to present her with the award for her fantastic fundraising efforts.”
