Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

SOAP stars headed to Tyther­ing­ton School to sup­port a young pupil’s char­ity cru­sade.

Thir­teen-year-old Honor Row­lands has set about rais­ing money for Once Upon A Smile, which works with fam­i­lies who have ex­pe­ri­enced be­reave­ment.

Honor is plan­ning a host of fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for the char­ity, which was set up by Em­merdale stars Daniel Jillings and Danny Miller, who is also Honor’s un­cle.

The stars joined in sev­eral matches be­tween years seven, eight and nine, as well as a staff verses sixth form game.

Danny said: “I’m so proud of Honor for or­gan­is­ing this, it’s one of the best school tour­na­ments we’ve been to and the whole school were en­cour­aged to be in­volved.”

Head­teacher, Manny Botwe said: “Honor was ab­so­lutely bril­liant.

“She or­gan­ised the whole day. We are de­lighted that Danny and Daniel could join us for the day.”

The event raised £500 for char­ity, with Honor plan­ning a 10K run, a bike ride and a hike up Mount Snow­don to raise more for the char­ity.
