Havering’s fantastic four raise �300
FOUR dedicated students raised �300 for breast cancer sufferers after organising a sponsored walk.
Lauren Higgins, Katie Sussex, Lucy Rofle and Ashleigh Beager – all 17 – from Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster were joined by 30 of their family and friends for the trek on Saturday in Thorndon Country Park for Breast Cancer Care.
Katie said: “We are just over the moon beccause we didn’t expect to raise so much and we are happy that it is going to such a good cause because breast cancer affects so many people.”
The teenagers organised the walk as part of their business studies coursework.
The girls also ran a cake stall last month to raise money for the charity.

Katie said: “It is quite an achievement because we could have organised any event, but we just really wanted to help people.”
