KIND-HEARTED youngsters at a Wirral school have raised hundreds of pounds for charity.
Pupils and staff of Raeburn Primary School in Bromborough have raised nearly £2,000 for two charities.
First of all they were raising money for Children in Need, then Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines and inspired them to fundraise for that appeal as well.
Amongst the many fundraising activities held for both causes included pupils coming to school decorated with spots, sponsored dancing at school discos, holding a cake sale and even donating their own pocket and birthday money.
To date the school has raised over £1,600 for the Philippines appeal and £330 for Children in Need.
Headteacher Mrs Edna Lester, said: “I am so proud of the way our children, staff and families are always so quick to think of others and to act.
“We have long standing associations with, and support for, local charities such as The Charles Thompson Mission in Birkenhead, and for international ones like the Pegasus Trust which helps street children in South Africa.
“The fact that there was such an overwhelming response to a natural disaster is just incredible and makes me even more proud of my school.”
