AFTER several weeks of learning about Africa, children at Northlands Primary School have donated £380 to Oxfam’s East Africa Appeal.

Much of the money was raised thanks to the craft skills of the children, who made cakes, friendship bracelets and other wares during the half term break. The whole school was involved in the appeal - fundraising also included hosting a non-uniform day and hosting bring and buy sales.

To help with their studies staff from regent Street’s Oxfam store dropped by the school before half term to tell them how the money will help.

More than 13 million people are currently facing a severe shortage of food in countries including Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia.
