CHILDREN at a Kidderminster nursery took part in a charity ‘wear orange day’ in support of a student with Leukaemia.

In August this year, Bella Hudson, aged nine, was diagnosed with T cell leukaemia and has undergone chemotherapy at Birmingham Children's Hospital.

Little Trinity Nursery held a fundraiser for hospital in support of Bella, who goes to Holy Trinity School. They raised £100 during their 'wear orange day'

With donated raffle prizes and an orange theme, representing the Leukaemia Awareness Ribbon, the nursery children made a range of orange picture creations and wore all things orange for the day for this very worthwhile cause.

Nursery Manager Gaynor Carter said: “As a nursery we wanted to show our support to Bella and her family at this very difficult time, so we decided to hold our very own fundraiser-raffle, which is in addition to the fundraising organised by her school and friends.”

Leukaemia is the most common childhood cancer and accounts for nearly a third of all cases in Great Britain.

Gaynor added: “We are overwhelmed and so grateful to all our nursery families for all their support in making our ‘wear orange day’ for Bella such a success. Thank you.”

A JustGiving page was started in support of the hospital, which has raised more than £2,000.

Bella's father Tom Hudson said on the page: "The doctors and nurses and all the staff here are amazing, they are literally life savers and deserve so much more. I owe these people everything.

"Bella is amazing, she’s such a kind loving little girl. She’s been so brave, she’s mine, Kelly’s, family and friends' little hero and I’m so so proud of her. I love you Bella, more than anything."
