Channing School Choir sang their hearts out at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in memory of a pupil who died of cancer.
Alexandra Wylie was just 17 when she lost her battle against cancer in November 2010.
This week pupils from the school, in The Bank, Highgate, were given a standing ovation following their performance at the arts festival in Edinburgh.
They wore bright pink t-shirts and blazors emblazoned with the logo of the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation – a charity which aims to keep Alexandra’s memory alive by making it possible for underprivileged young people achieve their dreams.
Alexandra’s parents travelled to Edinburgh to hear the girls.
Her mother, Lindsey Wylie, said: “The talent and enthusiasm of these girls is such a heart warming tribute to Allie.
“The choir has raised more than £200 and were absolutely brilliant.
“We are hugely grateful to them for their support which helps us to keep going and strengthens our determination to continue to work to helping children in severely deprived circumstances all over the UK.”
The choir will perform at the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation Pinknic in Waterlow Park, Highgate on September 8.
