Youngsters cooked up a butterfly themed fundraiser for a former pupil’s bucket list.

Schoolchildren at Powers Hall Infant School held a cake sale and a non-uniform day for six-year-old Ella Barden, who has the fatal premature ageing illness, Cockayne Syndrome.

Her little brother Alex also went to the bake sale last Wednesday with mum Jodie, whose unborn baby has also been diagnosed with the syndrome.
