PUPILS at Caedmon school took part in a fund-raising event for a charity that is helping fight leprosy.

A representative from charity “Lepra Health in Action” visited the school recently and presented a school assembly on the causes, effects and cures for leprosy.

Caedmon teacher Carol Richardson said: “Yvonne Bell, the representative, told us that it only costs £21 to cure a person of leprosy and that from taking the very first tablet of the cure, a person is no longer infectious.

“Teachers and pupils alike learnt a lot from the assembly.”

Year 7 children then took part in a “fun workout”, dancing with the Lepra representative and a fitness instructor to a zumba and bangra style with music.

Children were asked to collect funds and those who raised £21 or over were given a Lepra t-shirt.
