Louise, who is a teacher at Godmanchester Community Academy, dressed up for video lessons during lockdown learning and says pupils, parents and staff started asking what costume she was going to be wearing next.

"And so my fundraising idea called Fancy Fortnight was born. I am dressing up in a different fancy dress costume every day for a fortnight, to be worn all day every day, wherever I have to go and whatever I have to do, including teaching, essential shopping and daily exercise."

Louise stayed in her costumes all day - even at the supermarket.

"Children's well-being is more important than ever due to Covid-19 and so YoungMinds is the charity I have chosen to fundraise for.
