Children have been dressing up to raise money to support a seriously ill toddler.

Pupils at St Andrews School and Nursery Unit in Kettering held a superhero-themed mufti day to help raise money for Cerys Edwards, who went to the nursery before becoming sick.

Three-year-old Cerys, of Kettering, has already undergone nine-hour surgery after being diagnosed with brain cancer and faces further chemotherapy.

Sarah Stefanowicz, a member of staff at the school, said: “We’ve raised over £450 and we’re dividing that, at Cerys’s mum’s request, between the Ronald McDonald House at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and money for the family to use on something for Cerys.

“She’s such a lovely girl. She’s been in to visit us already and we’re hoping that once the treatment is finished she’ll be able to come in and see us again.”
