BUSINESS-MINDED students who raised cash in memory of their friend Kyle Rees, who died after being hit on the head by a cricket ball, have presented a cheque for £4,000 to the Southampton hospital that cared for him before he died.
Team 4K, from Avonbourne College in Bournemouth sold wristbands after securing a £1,000 loan from Dragon’s Den e n t r e p r e n e u r Peter Jones.
Not only have they been able to repay the loan but £4,000 profit has been presented to Southampton General Hospital’s paediatric intensive care ward.
Kyle, pictured, 16, died after a tragic accident in which he was hit on the head with an indoor practice cricket ball at neighbouring Portchester School, now Harewood College, in Harewood Avenue, Bournemouth.
