Homefield Church of England Primary organised three charity events to raise funds for Anna Poppy Lawson, from Bradwell, who has medulloblastoma, a form of childhood cancer.

A 'Disney Day' held in early November saw children and staff dress in character outfits celebrating Anna's passion for all things Disney.

A second event, on December 4, saw classes enjoy an after-school disco, provided free of charge by DJ Kev, a local children's entertainment and disco company.

The school also raised funds selling raffle tickets after a holiday at Haven Caister was donated by parents and Bourne Leisure.
