A PRIMARY school pupil has completed an eight-mile walk to help support a hospital project creating a new waiting room for children.

On November 19, Alexa Fogg, of Northwich, walked to her school in Great Budworth, with the journey taking her just less than three hours to complete.

The nine-year-old was inspired to raise money for the Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity appeal for a new waiting room at the Victoria Infirmary (VIN) after she and some of her friends were treated there.

Alexa has raised £400 so far and hopes the development of the new waiting room can help make the young patients' experience that little bit easier.

Mum Holly Fogg said: “Alexa has been amazed by all of the generous donations she’s received from her friends, family and teachers who have all helped her to raise an amazing £400 for such a great cause.”

Rachel Corradine, the acting head teacher at Great Budworth CofE Primary School, described Alexa as a ‘kind and gentle member’ of the school family.

She added: “Alexa has shown courageous advocacy in her determination to help those less fortunate than herself.

“She lives out the Christian values underpinning our school ethos of faith, hope and love with love being the greater.”
