Pupils at Channing School and St Michael’s Primary in Highgate chose to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year by pitching in to help a local charity’s efforts to feed vulnerable families.
In support of the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation (AWTF), set up in memory of 17-year-old Allie Wylie who tragically died in 2010, helps to support families living in poverty in north London and beyond, pupils at Channing wore pink on February 14 while children and parents at St Michael's collected food for families who struggle during school holidays without free school meals.
Allie's mother Lindsey said:"TWe are real grateful to Channing School (where Alexandra was so very happy) and St Michael's for their generosity and kindness. This will go a long way to helping those we support, including the 75 families we feed each week."
Kate Anderson, a sixth former at Channing, said: 'Although many of us did not have the chance to meet Allie, we all hear amazing stories of her being an outstanding pupil and friend. We wear pink every year to honour her memory and raise money for the foundation."
