Staff and pupils at St 
Bartholomew’s Church of England Primary School had ‘onesie’ thing in mind on Monday – and that was to raise funds for World Diabetes Day.

Pupils – and some of the teachers – paid a pound to wear their favourite onesie or pyjamas to make some cash forJDRF, the Type 1 Diabetes charity.

The school holds a diabetes fundraiser every year, not only to make money for a great cause but also to show support to Year 3 pupil Faith Robinson, who has Type 1 Diabetes.

Head teacher James Shawley – AKA Superman – told the Spalding Guardian: “The day went very well and the children enjoyed dressing up... as did some of the staff.”

Faith, of West Pinchbeck, was diagnosed with the chronic condition when she was just two years old after a chest infection attacked her pancreas.

Her mum, Gemma Robinson, has gone on to raise thousands of pounds for the charity through staging popular annual fundraising balls ion Spalding.
