Soap stars help pupil net £500 for charity
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.
