Children at King’s Ely Acremont and Nursery raised £400 for victims of Hurricane Irma by holding a bake sale.
Willow Barry, a reception pupil at King’s Ely Acremont, said she was so moved by the recent devastation that she decided a cake sale in school could be a good way to raise money for the victims and their families.
The money will go to the British Red Cross, whose aid-workers are on the ground delivering support to those worst affected.
Sarah Stevens, acting head and reception teacher at King’s Ely Acremont, said: “The devastation caused by Hurricane Irma really hit a chord with Willow.
“She talked to the reception children about her concerns and suggested we hold a cake sale to raise money for the victims. “We were overwhelmed by the response from parents and children alike.
