A SCHOOL supported a children’s charity in style with a non-uniform day.

Old Bank Primary School raised £105 by asking pupils to make a donation to Unicef when they swapped their usual uniform for their favourite outfits.

Pupils also made and sold buns last week to top up the total.

The non-uniform day was held to mark Unicef’s Day for Change when schools around the world are asked to do something different to raise money and awareness of its work.

Money raised by this year’s event will help support children in Guyana, South America, and promote their right to a healthy life and education.

To help the children understand how their donations would make a difference, Old Bank held lessons on climate change in Guyana and the problems caused by a lack of clean water.
