School pupils in charity mission


Students at Horncastle’s Banovallum School will be putting their best foot forward on Friday April 4 to raise money for Cancer Research.

A school spokesman said: “We would obviously like to raise as much money as possible for the charity so we’d encourage friends family and colleagues to sponsor students.”
