Haverhill school honours late governor and parent Emma Limpus




Staff and pupils at a Suffolk school have found a special way to remember a popular school governor and PTA member who died last year.

Those at Clements Primary Academy in Haverhill joined together to remember parent and former governor Emma Limpus who died of cancer last year.

A fundraising run was also organised in memory of Emma, whose daughter Isabelle still attends the school, and in aid of a charity which cared for Emma during her illness.

Vicky Hogg, headteacher, said: “We wanted to do something in memory of Emma who has always been a big supporter of the school.

“Working with Emma’s family, we chose to support the Maggie’s charity as they provided Emma and her family with incredible support at a time when it was needed most.

“It was a poignant occasion but we are pleased with how much was raised and would like to thank everyone who supported the day.”

The run took place on the school field and was staggered among year groups throughout the day.

It raised more than £1,645 for Cambridge-based Maggie’s charity.
