PICTURES: Pupils show their support for Amelia-Rose

Farway and Mill Water School join forces to support Batten’s disease sufferers.

Children from Farway Primary School and Mill Water School in Honiton joined forces to raise money for Batten’s disease sufferers after being inspired by the story of Amelia Rose.

The pupils organised a fancy dress and table top sale to raise money for the Batten Foundation.

They raised �140 and the children hope to continue raising money.

A busking event in Honiton is planned for later this month.
