During the morning the children organised and ran a cake stall, and later in the afternoon held a bring and buy sale.

Head teacher Pat Strickson explained more about the appeal: "The appeal aims to provide seeds and tools for people in Bangladesh and India which in turn will provide meals for children in these countries."

Mrs Strikson was delighted with the amount raised and said it was, "amazing."
