Ilford students raise more than �1k for children’s charity
Students raised more than �1,000 for charity and made special badges celebrating friendship and caring at a school in Ilford.
The pupils at Al-Noor Primary School, Green Lane raised the money for children’s charity Barnardo’s through getting donations from their family and friends.
Someera Butt, headteacher of the school, said: “We believe the work they do echoes our own values, such as striving to make a positive contribution to society.”
The school was visited by a representative from Barnado’s last week, who spoke to the children about the work they do.
She also gave a special teddy bear to one lucky child whose name was pulled from a hat.
