Channing School Choir sing in memory of Alexandra Wylie at Edinburgh Festival
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.
