A KIND-hearted teenager from Belper has raised £557 for charity by holding a festive fundraiser at her school in memory of her dad.

Megan Hodgkinson, 13, of Ladywood Avenue, lost her father Darran to a heart attack in March 2010. He was aged just 44.

She wanted to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation in his memory and organised an event with her friends at Belper School.

Megan said: “I want to thank my tutors and form for helping to make the Santa’s grotto happen. We are so grateful to those who came along and donated, whether it was a penny or a pound. It was a great day.” Her mum, Kim, added: “I am so proud of Megan and her friends.”
