Children at a Barkingside school raised nearly £500 with hand-made cakes and trinkets last week.

Clore Tikva Primary School, Fullwell Avenue, held a “Make Off” sale for parents.

Pupils worked hard in the day making cakes, biscuits, jewellery and keyrings for the end of day sale.

All money raised went towards the school and the Jewish Blind and Disabled Association.

Headteacher Lenna Rosenberg said pupils voted for what type of event they would like to hold and were inspired to do the “Make Off” after a “Bake Off” held for Red Nose Day earlier this year.

Mrs Rosenberg said: “It built on the success of Comic Relief and they made a whole range of things for 10p, 50p and £1.

“We’re going to use the school money for new ICT equipment.”
