The year six class at St John's School organised a crazy games event for all juniors, where children paid to play daft games and activities.

Saxophone duo Small Change, also known as Jan McCann and Jackie Ensall, played in Sidmouth’s Market Place to net more than £600.

Jan said: “We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported us. It was great fun, and such an important cause.”

Staff at Boots Opticians thanked their customers for supporting their bake sale and helping to bring in £103.

And between Children in Need and ChildLine, pupils at St John’s School raised £1,000 for charity last week.

For Children in Need, the year six class organised a games day while the seniors set up stalls to sell snacks and crafts.

Head boy Michael, 11, said: “I’m just really proud of us as a school, because we aren’t that big really but all of us care about helping others, and we worked hard to achieve something good.”
