UPDATED: Aylesbury school raising money for student after house fire

An Aylesbury school are raising money for one of their students and her family after two tragic accidents.

A year and a half ago The Grange school student, who is staying anonymous, was involved in a terrible car crash.

It claimed the life of her dad and hospitalised her mum with life-changing injuries, including paralysis.

Her mum is currently still receiving continuous care in hospital.

After this accident, the student joined The Grange at the start of Year 11.

The school have said:

"From the onset [she] proved to be a polite, caring and hardworking student.

"[She] is focused on her education, demonstrating a fantastic attitude towards her GCSE subjects."

After sitting her first GCSE exam, she went to visit her mum in hospital with her brother.

When she came home, she found her house on fire and her family have lost everything.

Even after this tragedy she went back into school the next day to sit a GCSE exam.

Now, The Grange wants to help:

"As staff we wish to honour our school's ethics and values by asking the local and wider community to come together to support this resilient family during an unimaginably tough time.

"Anything you can contribute will go a long way to supporting the family in getting them essentials for living."

They want to raise £2,500 - you can donate here.

Update:

After we shared this story earlier today, thanks to your generous donations the page has reached its target of £2,500.

But, The Grange wants to go one step further and see if they can raise £5,000.
