Pupils at a Teddington school successfully raised over one thousand pounds for a selection of charities, as part of its annual charity event.

Three to eleven-year olds from Stanley Primary School took part in the school's 35th Charity Day event where they managed to raise £1,850 - bringing the school’s total amount of fundraising to £100,000, since 1984.

Children from each year group raised money for Save the Children, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Water Aid, Shooting Star Hospice for Children and the Insect Conservation.

The school also allowed the kids the opportunity to invent their own games and activities as well as dress in a ‘Heroes and Heroines’ theme, inspired by those who the children deemed to be influential to them.

All the children were involved in fund-raising for their chosen charities by inventing games and activities.

A spokesperson from the school said: “Thank you to everyone who supported the day which was great fun and a special thank you to Mrs Griffiths who has been involved organising Charities Day for our school throughout the 35 years.”
