Three Felsted School students ran 5K every day for a month and raised over £2,500 for Farleigh Hospice.
Jasmine Irvine-Scott, 17, and her friends Alexa and Clemmie set up an online fundraising page with a target of £500, but it was surpassed in a week.
They have raised £2,200 so far plus a further £335 through Gift Aid.
Jasmine said: “Every year our school raised money for Farleigh Hospice but when the school closed due to Covid-19 we were worried that the hospice would miss out.”
Jasmine has also been volunteering in Farleigh’s Great Dunmow charity shop, which has reopened, for just over a year, helping out every other Saturday during term time and several times a week during summer.

“All the nurses, doctors, patients and their families truly appreciate all their support.”
