Westwoodside Primary School pupil Megan Simpson picked up a Pride of the Isle Award after raising £102 for charity.

She sold wrist bands for the Pride of the Isle charity, which was set up in memory of Epworth boy Alexander Strong who died from a form of children’s cancer in 2013. The money will go towards buying equipment to help people with cancer.
