Some of the senior prefects from St John Fisher High School get ready to leave for their prom wearing ribbons in memory of classmate Lucy Davies, who died after contracting sepsis while battling leukaemia.

Many pupils and staff wore ribbons in memory of Lucy Davies, who died aged just 12 in 2014 after contracting sepsis following a brave battle with leukaemia.

Michelle Clarke, whose son attends the school, decided to make the ribbons and sell them to raise money for charity in Lucy’s memory.

Head of year Phil Stuchberry said: “Lucy was a valued member of our school community and we wanted to make sure that she was remembered at our leavers’ ball.”
