A FORMER cancer patient encouraged school pupils and workers to don hats for the day in aid of cancer charities.
Darland High School pupil Christopher Jones, of Rossett, was diagnosed with leukaemia at the age of four.
Now 16, he wanted to give something back to the people who helped him by organising a Caps on 4 Cancer Day.
The day saw schools and workplaces across the area getting involved with employees and pupils wearing hats for the day and making donations.
Christopher’s mum, Victoria, said: “We are delighted with the support we’ve had.
“Christopher has worked really hard on this and we have been surprised by how kind people have been.”
Money raised will be split between Alder Hey Children’s Hospital Oncology Unit, where Christopher was treated, Cancer and Leukaemia in Children (CLIC), Children Cancer Support (CHIC) and the Ronald McDonald House.
But Christopher is not going to stop now, with more fundraising events planned for upcoming weeks, and signed caps from 11 of the jockeys in the Grand National to be auctioned off to raise funds.
