Stalham pupils raise pounds for charity

Pupils from a north Norfolk school have been getting into character and helping raise money for charity at the same time.

Stalham Junior School pupils held a Character Day in order to raise money for the local First Responders group, with children and Staff coming to school dressed as a character from a book or film.

The best most originally dressed children received book tokens for their efforts.

Following an assembly by the First Responders, the children participated in a character trail which involved identifying 25 famous book and film faces. Prizes were given out for the highest mark in each class.

A book cover competition was also held on the day, where children choose a book title and designed a cover to match, blurb for the back and even a barcode. Twelve book covers were then chosen and prizes were awarded.

The school raised a total of �257 to help the First Responders buy a defibrillator.

A spokesman for the school said it was 'a fantastic effort'.
