Pupils at a Barkingside school have raised nearly £5,000 in just three weeks for a children’s charity.
Clore Tikva Primary School, in Fullwell Avenue, was inspired to support the NSPCC after a worker visited earlier this month.
Headteacher Lenna Rosenberg said every one of the school’s 420 children chipped in to sponsored PE sessions.
She added: “We couldn’t believe how much we raised - I don’t think we’ve ever got so much for any charity.
“It’s part of the school’s ethos to help charities and they do great work.”
