Pupils tip their hats to cancer charity appeal
The boys' classmates at St Peter at Gowts school in Lincoln were inspired by their friends' stories and held a fundraising day to raise money for cancer charities.
The children were invited to pay a pound to wear hats and bandanas to school.
Emma Smith said: "With it being brain tumour awareness month in March, I sent the school a link and suggested doing something to raise some money," she said.
"The school liked the idea and asked me and Debbie to speak to them to see what we were thinking.

"We came up with the idea and put the plan into action.
"It went down really well and all the children seemed to enjoy themselves."
Mrs Smith and Mrs Logan have known each other for many years and have helped each other deal with their children's illnesses.
"We spoke to the children at an assembly about Alex and Callum and let them ask us questions," said Mrs Logan, of Albert Terrace.
"We wanted them to try and understand cancer.
"It was difficult answering their questions so that they were aware but not frightened.
"We also had a few games going on throughout the day which helped raise some money.
"It was a great day and we are looking at doing something else in the summer."
The school raised £217.05 which will be split between The Brain Tumour Charity and Children with Cancer.
Pippa Gough, general manager at Children with Cancer UK said: "We want to say a huge thank you to all the pupils and staff at St Peter at Gowts School."
