Carole thanked all schools for taking part. On Nene Valley, she said: “Every penny they have raised will help fund four weeks’ specialist neuro-rehabilitation for eight children with a brain tumour.” Stuart Mansell, headteacher, said “It is an honour for Nene Valley to win the Anna’s Hope Schools’ Challenge and the school is so proud of all the children and parents that took part in supporting the event.”
