Students in Norfolk have been standing up to cancer in a week-long fundraiser organised by a 12-year-old.

Tom Doran, a student at Acle Academy, created a week of events to help raise money for charity.

It started with a bake sale, which involved students across the school, before a contest to guess how many sweets were in the jar and a guess the baby picture quiz, which saw staff members share their own baby photos.

Meanwhile, students were also given the chance to beat teachers in a table tennis tournament, before a non-uniform day brought the week to a close.

While the school is still counting donations, they believe they are nearing their £800 target.

Principal Helen Watts said the school was very proud of Tom and his team of helpers for “showing such dedication, passion and community spirit”.
