Sixth Form pupils from Langley School have surpassed targets in their goal to donate to Little Lifts, a county breast cancer charity.

The school's prefects originally aimed to raise £200, but the enthusiastic support from students, parents and staff saw them far surpass their goal.

The current total stands at an impressive £1,530.

The sum raised will be donated to Little Lifts, a charity that offers comfort to breast cancer patients by creating and distributing gift boxes, regardless of their location in the UK.

These 'little lifts' are intended to bring solace to patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments.

The funding was accumulated through a variety of student-lead events, including a non-uniform 'Comfy Day' and collections at the school's seasonal carol service held at Norwich Cathedral in December.

Langley School headmaster, Mr Perriss, said: “We are so proud of our prefects, who have shown real kindness in wanting to support something so important.

"We are also grateful for the backing received from the Langley community.
