Highwood School pupils raise £200 through sponsored skipBy Jon Nurse

A sponsored skip at a Woodley primary school raised hundreds of pounds for needy children.
Children at Highwood Primary School in Fairwater Drive completed close to 2,000 skips to raise around £200 for Children in Need and the NSPCC.
The fundraising efforts were bolstered by a non-uniform day on Friday, November 16, when pupils brought in their pennies for Pudsey.
The children covered a large picture of Pudsey Bear with the coins.
Family and friends were recruited for sponsorship as each class leapt into a skipping event.
Kim Williams, a representative from the NSPCC, visited the school last month to give an assembly and explained how the charity helps children all over the country.
