Students and staff at Blackville School raised $1300.00 for the fight against cancer.

A school-wide penny drive was recently held and $800.00 was raised, and a walk was held in October which raised $500.00

The school had an assembly on Monday morning, November 19 to celebrate the amount raised and watch three school members get their hair cut.

Middle school teacher Madame Michelle Tobin-Forgrave, grade 12 Student Council President Marissa Donohue, and grade 7 student Abby Donovan all donated some of their hair. Their donation will be used to make wigs for patients who lose their hair as the result of cancer treatment.

Local hairdresser Lori Anne Jardine was on hand to help with the hair cuts.
