Harpole pupils raised more than £500 for Ukraine.

Selina Gaughy, a parent who helped to organise the bake sale, said: “After hearing about the awful situation in Ukraine some pupils and their siblings from Harpole Primary School knew they wanted to do something to help, so they decided to organise a bake sale.

“Despite the freezing weather there were lots of people there buying baked goods.

“The children served them with a smile and felt absolutely thrilled with the event.

“They were so pleased when they realised how much they’d raised specifically to support those in Ukraine.”

The children want to thank those who supported the event.
