Ipswich: Day in memory of teacher Shirley Bugg
PUPILS dressed up as their favourite creepy-crawlies in memory of a much-loved teacher.
Ipswich High School for Girls was full of creatures great and small last week when students paid tribute to PE teacher Shirley Bugg, who died in April this year after suffering from a brain tumour.
More than �350 was raised for Brain Tumour UK on the day which would have been Mrs Bugg’s 57th birthday.
Organiser Amy Bradburne said: “The Bugg Day was a great success, filled with fond memories of Mrs Bugg. The support was overwhelming.”
Mrs Bugg, who has been described as “bubbly, vivacious, caring and nurturing” left her job at Ipswich High School after falling ill in November, 2010 – symptoms that were thought to be from a mini-stroke. Further scans revealed a tumour and the positioning of the growth on the brain stem meant doctors could not operate.
