Pupils’ £4k tribute to teacher

Have your say

A SCHOOL’S students have raised almost £4,000 in memory of one of their teachers.

Pupils teamed up with staff from Hawk House at Framwellgate School, Durham, to run events in memory of Derek Sutton, formerly the school’s director of technology.

He died last summer of pneumonia after he was diagnosed with cancer.

Fund-raisers included a 10-mile sponsored walk and cake sales.

Of the £3,800 raised, £1,000 has been donated to the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust, with cash also donated to other good causes.
