Long Sutton Primary School joined hands and hearts with victims of the earthquake in Nepal on a fundraising day this term.

Youngsters were invited to wear clothes with the Nepalese colours of red, white and blue on a non-uniform day which raised £470 for the disaster relief effort still ongoing.

Pupils also remembered families who have lost loved ones and those injured at an assembly where they were given Nepalese flags to write prayers and messages of support on.

Tracy Rosher, school business manager, said: “Our Year 3 and 4 children have been studying natural disasters as part of their curriculum.

“Then this horrible event occurred in Nepal which really helped the children understand what can happen, on a human scale, when a natural disaster occurs.”
