Children at Paddox Primary School in Hillmorton have pulled together to help typhoon victims.

They raised more than £1,700 in their ‘Standing Up for the Philippines’ fundraiser.

Laura Heathfield, a teacher at Paddox Primary, said: “As a school we stood up for the time it takes to fly directly to the Philippines, which is 13 hours 15 minutes.

The children were sponsored for every ten minutes that they remained standing.” Staff said they were proud of the children’s efforts. “It was a brilliant amount to raise for such a worthwhile cause,” said Laura.
