The children of St Mary’s School in Hackney joined parent Kelly Casey on her walk to raise money for brain tumour research. Kelly has an inoperable brain tumour and walks dressed as Derick the duck. The children wearing yellow clothes and duck masks joined her.

In line with the schools’ mission statement, the great community including, children, staff, parents, governors and friends came together to help Kelly walk her 10,000 steps around Clissold Park on 23 February. Everyone gathered in the school playground to do a warm up, led by Kelly. It certainly got everyone laughing, smiling and ready for the walk.

This piece from ITV news also includes an interview with Jane O’Brien, Headteacher at the school.
