Young entrepreneurs in Woodley have raised thousands of pounds for a water appeal.
Year Six pupils from St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School, in Western Avenue, designed and ran stalls for their schoolmates for the Catholic Overseas Development Agency's (CAFOD) Give it Up appeal. T
he stalls raised £1,200 for the appeal, which has been doubled to £2,400 by the government’s UK Aid Match Funding scheme that aims to help 60 million more people gain access to clean water and sanitation by 2015.
Pupils sold homemade cakes, toys and games on their stalls in the second week of March.
