The local charity ran a competition for students at the school, asking them to suggest names based on their favourite things about living in the Morecambe Area.

Engagement officer Sarah Drake said: “The rooms at our new Morecambe centre will be used for counselling, aromatherapy and CancerCare’s work with children and young people and they are really important spaces for the people we help as they cope with cancer or bereavement.

"We loved reading all the children’s entries and were impressed with how much they had thought about their suggestions.”
