Friday Bridge youngsters support Nepal appeal
Generous youngsters at a Fenland primary school have helped to raise money to help the victims of the Nepal earthquakes.
Pupils and staff at Friday Bridge Primary School swapped their usual uniforms and work clothes for jeans and shorts during the event. The school raised £87 for the appeal. Kathmandu and the surrounding areas were rocked by a 7.8-magnitude earthquake on April 25. More than 8,000 people were killed and thousands more were injured and lost their homes. Schools in the country have only just started to re-open. Charities such as Oxfam, the Red Cross and Unicef are running appeals to help the Nepalese people. School secretary Janet Robinson said: “We were really pleased with the amount raised.” Teaching assistant Amanda Brittain is pictured above with the children. They also presented her with gifts to mark her departure at half-term.
