A Year 9 student at Loreto College in Coleraine has honoured the memory of her late mother by raising money for the charity Cancer Research.

Big-hearted Sarah Lundy carried out some dedicated fund-raising both in and outside school.

End following her wonderful efforts Sarah raised a magnificent £1195 in memory of her mother, Mary Rose Lundy.

The sum was presented to Sharon Arbuckle of Cancer Research NI at Loreto College earlier this month.

Sarah raised money at the birthday celebration of her father, Ronan, to celebrate her mother’s life and to help those who could benefit from cancer research in the future.

As well as enlisting the help of family and friends, Sarah continued her fundraising in school as the Autumn term began, and was delighted to find her classmates and friends were keen to support her fundraising.

Mrs Lorraine McCool, Social Justice Co-ordinator at Loreto College, paid tribute to Sarah for her dedication in support of others, on behalf of all the staff and students of the school.
