A SPORTING masterclass was given to youngsters by England Ladies' cricket captain Charlotte Edwards at Saffron Walden County High School on Sunday.

Children aged between eight and 12-years-old received coaching at Sports Zone II, an event organised by A-level leisure studies students, which raised £1000 for the Essex Children's Hospice.

Teacher Sandi Merifield said: "The students planned, organised and ran the event fantastically well.

"Charlotte is a family friend of one of the students, which was very lucky and we were delighted to have her with us."

Saffron Walden Cricket Club also helped out, as did coaches from Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
