GREEN-fingered pupils at King's Acremont - the Nursery and Pre-Prep of the King's School in Ely planted bulbs in their school grounds to raise money for charity.
The boys and girls, aged from two-and-a-half to seven, each paid £1 to plant a bulb and the money raised went to Teenage Cancer Trust which is the focus of the school's charity fund-raising this year. The TCT is aiming to raise 1.5million to fund a specialist unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital for the treatment of teenage cancer patients from all over the region.
"We have over an acre of garden and the bulbs will make a lovely splash of colour," said Felicity Blake, head of King's Acremont.
"They will be planted in clumps and each child will put a marker in the ground so they can watch them grow."
