Students and staff at school in Clacton have raised more than £600 for cancer treatment centre which is "close to their hearts".

The students were back in action to raise money for the Collingwood Centre for cancer treatment at Colchester Hospital.

A spokesman for the school said: "The centre has been central to the treatment of some Clacton County High School families and, to help continue their vital care and support, the school has donated the proceeds from a non-uniform day, Sigma Sixth Form sweet bag sales and a business studies fundraising fair to the centre.

They presented the cash to Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity community fundraising manager, Penny Norris at the hospital.
