A popular teaching assistant at a West Moors school was fondly remembered when pupils took part in a dress up and dance day, pictured.

The event was held to raise money for Macmillan Caring Locally, the charity which cared for Carol Andrews before she sadly lost her battle with cancer in March.

Youngsters donned colourful costumes and were joined by Carol’s husband, Martin, and daughter, Tamara, for the event.

Miss Rebecca from Studio One – Dorset Centre for the Performing Arts led the dance session free of charge and a total of £282 was raised.
