A sea of pink has been sported by junior school pupils to raise money in support of a former student involved in a car accident before Christmas.
Last Friday Redbourn Junior School raised more than £330 for Great Ormond Street Hospital where past pupil Molly Goodchild has been treated.
Molly, now in Year 8 at Roundwood Secondary School, was in collision with a car in Redbourn at the beginning of December.
The junior school, which Molly’s brother still attends, decided to all wear pink, the colour Molly wants to colour her hair following her time in hospital, to raise money for the charity.
School secretary Sarah Lowther said: “It was really good. The pupils were very excited. They know Molly and her brother.

“Everyone got involved, even the teachers. Sometimes it’s difficult to get young boys to dress up but one even came dressed in a pink wig.
“It’s our responsibility as a community to do something. We have tried to help as much as we can and support her brother.”

Molly was airlifted to Great Ormond Street Hospital after the accident where she was cared for until recently.
Sarah added: “We wanted to make everyone aware of everything they do.”
The incident moved the community, who have offered continued support for Molly and her family.
Sarah said: “It’s still going to be a very long journey for her and I know her parents are thinking about doing a bigger event.”
