Children and staff at Osgodby Primary School ditched their uniforms to raise money for charity.

Denim was the order of the day - a change to jump into those jeans, throw on a denim jacket or slither into a denim skirt.

For a number of years now, the school has taken part in Jeans for Genes and Denim for Diabetes events, but this year they have been delighted to beat all their previous totals.

By paying to wear denim and also filling the charity logos with coins, the school of 93 children has raised £129.

The money will be split between the Jeans for Genes charity, which cares for and support children born with a genetic disorder, and Diabetes UK.

And the school continues to think of others by taking part in the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

They will be hosting their event in the school this Friday, September 27, 10 am to 11.30am.
