Winchester House School is holding the event, which involves children wearing

Children wore their 'funkiest' socks at Winchester House School in honour of Mr Leach and his wonderful sock collection.

The school is holding a bucket collection on the drive and in the pre prep car park to collect donations for the charity Katharine House Hospice.

The school's art teacher, Suzanne Kennedy, has painted a selection of Chris' more 'wacky' socks. She has had them printed onto material, and is making a quilt with the material for Chris' children.

Mr Leach sadly died after recently being diagnosed with cancer. He passed away in Katharine House Hospice on the evening of Friday March 5 with his beloved wife Tracey by his side.

He served as a teacher for 11 years at Winchester House School where he was the school’s head of ICT and Pupil Progress mentor.
