IF you like the colour tangerine, Baines School in Poulton was the place to be yesterday.

Francesca Horner, 13-year-old daughter of Seasiders physio Phil, came up with the idea of a ‘Tangerine Day’ at her school to raise money for Gary Parkinson, the Seasiders youth coach who is recovering from a stroke.

Pupils were allowed to come to school in their tangerine tops in return for a donation, while Seasiders stars Stephen Crainey and David Vaughan dropped in with some signed items for the school to raffle to make more money for Parkinson.

“It was all Francesca’s idea,” said dad Phil. “She did a great job and I’m very proud of her.”
