Children and staff at Mill Water Show their support for Cancer Research UK.

Children and staff at Mill Water School in Honiton donned bandanas of every colour to raise money for Cancer Research.

The bandana day was inspired by teaching assistant Jean Williams who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer and wears a different bandana or headscarf to school everyday.

There was also competition for the best bandana, which was won by Ellen Hampton.

“Everyone had a fun time,” says Jean. “All the students and staff have been very supportive.”

The school raised £155.50 which will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
