Bag-pack friends raise school cash
HUNDREDS of pounds have been raised by The Friends of Seascale School at a recent bag-packing event.
They were trying to raise as much money as possible for the school to help buy new computer equipment.
Kathleen Hartley said: “Pupils and parents enjoyed taking part in the voluntary fundraiser.
“They raised a total of £345 on the day.
“Thanks to Morrisons for allowing us to use their premises and to all the shoppers who gave so generously!”

The occupant of the house on Queen Street left just before 4pm and when he returned around 7.20pm, a locked door had been forced open and a tin containing £50 cash stolen from the kitchen.
