PRESCHOOL pupils and parents helped raise thousands of pounds for terminally-ill children.

Hagbourne Pre-School near Didcot raised £6,382 with a quiz, auction and cabaret night on May 11.

They have now presented their profits to staff from Helen and Douglas House children's hospice in Oxford.

Hospice spokeswoman Alison Hooker said: "I would like to say a huge thank you to Hagbourne Pre School for raising such an amazing amount of money for us to help local terminally ill children."

She went on: "The money raised will help local children who may not live a long life to live a full life.

"It means we can be there to help families from diagnosis, during everyday family life, times of crisis and through bereavement.

"This would not be possible without wonderful supporters like Hagbourne Pre School so we would like to say a big thank you to them, their parents and pupils for raising this money."
