Primary school children held their annual 20p coin trail in aid of a worthy cause.
Pupils from Ursuline Preparatory School, Warley, have been saving their 20p’s over the last few months in anticipation of the popular fundraiser to raise money for CAFOD (the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development).
Each school house took it in turns to place their 20ps in a row along the length of the new school hall with the Year 6 class (U2) adding the final touches with their coins.
St Patrick’s were delighted to be presented with the trophy after managing to have two lines of 20ps stretching the length of their new school hall, with St Andrew’s, St David’s and St George’s not far behind.
A representative from CAFOD will be going to the school to receive a cheque from the charity prefects and the captain of St Patrick’s house in due course.
Headmistress Pauline Wilson said: “I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the parents and children from the school as they have collected more than £1,000 for this very worthy cause.”
