Fellow Year 11 Students of Rainford High Technology College organised and released 250 balloons in memory of Tom Cowley. Tom was a much loved student of the school and sadly passed away shortly before Christmas.
Personal messages and tributes to Tom were tied on to each balloon. The whole year group gathered in the school courtyard to pay their final respects and goodbyes before the balloons were released.
Since Tom’s death the school has raised a whopping £1100 through donations and cake sales. The money raised will go to Tom’s family’s charity of choice Cancer Research.
