Teachers from Longshaw Junior School, Blackburn, have been raising money in November in memory of their loved staff member, Lynn White, for East Lancashire Hospice.

The school has chosen to honour Lynn’s memory in different ways and also supported East Lancashire Hospice after the care given to her.

Lynn sadly died in 2020 after her battle with cancer, since then the school have involved the pupils in raising money for the hospice by firstly wearing something silver to school and making a donation, they have also taken part in the East Lancashire Hospice Virtual Memory Walk in memory of Lynn.

Jonathan Berry, deputy headteacher at Longshaw Junior School, said: “Mrs White was such a big part of our school and brought so much joy into our students learning. We wanted to do something at the school in her memory and thought a reading room would be the perfect fit. Lynn’s Lodge, situated at the bottom of our outdoor area, will be with us for the foreseeable and will benefit our students learning in such a positive way, just the way she did.”
