PUPILS raised more than £200 by organising a coin spiral in memory of a much-loved science technician at an Ipswich school.
Youngsters at Thurleston High School in Defoe Road, have now donated the money to Cancer Research UK as a tribute to June Boardman who died just before Christmas.
To honour her memory the school held a special assembly dedicated to the 51-year-old who died of cancer and a cheque for £275 was presented to the charity.
