CAULDEEN Primary recently hosted a fun day to raise money for Maisie Fraser, a former pupil with a rare form of liver cancer.

Teachers and pupils wanted to help the 18-year-old with funds towards completing her ‘bucket list’ of things to do.

The appeal was launched in April, with Maisie keen to realise a number of goals before she loses her fight to cancer.

Maisie said: “What an incredible amount raised guys! I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

Her uncle, Shaun Smith, is currently training for the Three Peaks Challenge as a fundraiser too.

He said: “We are doing it to help raise funds for her to live the best life that she can or just treat herself.”
