A Neale-Wade student has raised £1,000 for charity after completing a 5K run following the death of his grandmother.
David Ketteringham has been raising money for Ovarian Cancer Action after his nan, Miriam Moate, sadly passed away from the disease in March 2017.
He completed a 5K run with some friends on the Neale-Wade's astroturf on March 7 and raised £524.
The academy also held a Wear Something Blue day to help boost David's fundraising, and raised £476, bringing his total to £1,000.
Jason Wing, executive principal, said: "I am very proud of David's achievement.
