YOUNGSTERS used the power of song to raise cash for a charity close to their hearts.

Children from Glenfield Infant School in Southampton handed over a cheque for more than £1,000 to Diabetes UK after one of the pupils was diagnosed with the condition.

The money was raised by pupils taking part in a singing relay concert.

Vicki Lamprey and daughter Brooke, 7, handed over a cheque to the charity’s Lewis Honeywill at a special assembly.
