WHERE there is a will ­— there is a way.

And these charitable young people at Hazel Wood High School refused to be beaten when they had to cancel their Macmillan Coffee Morning because of coronavirus restrictions.

Every year, the Year Seven pupils welcome their families and members of the community into school and raise money for the cancer charity.

But because of the pandemic the event had to be cancelled, so instead pupils organised an afternoon of fundraising ­— everything for a sponsored silence to a penalty shoot-out ­— with all five forms organising their own fun activity.

The day finished with a tea party in their form rooms.

And together they raised £359.95.

Head of Year Seven, Rebecca Davison said: "It was a great fun-packed afternoon where the pupils had the chance to raise as much money as possible. I am really pleased with the efforts of Year Seven.”

Year Seven pupil, Eva Corfield said: “It was great and I felt really proud that we were supporting a charity that affects many families. Macmillan helped my family and I wanted to do the same.”

The school also lent its support to Bury Hospice, the school's chosen charity, by bringing Christmas festivities forward.

The school held a sponsored Christmas jumper day.

This raised £1075 for the local charity, with Year Nine pupils Ibrahim Shabir and Kara Brady presenting the cheque to Dale Mulgrew from Bury Hospice.
