Youngsters of Windwhistle Primary School held a mufti day to raise money for Secret World Wildlife Rescue.

Year two pupils at the school, in Kingsley Road, made cakes, clay hedgehogs and bookmarks to sell, with all funds going to the charity.

A total of £105 was raised, which a cheque proudly presented to a representative from the charity during morning assembly.

The class has been reading The Hodgeheg by Dick King Smith, which tells a tale about how a hedgehog cannot cross a road safely.

Teacher Sarah Newbury said: “The book got the children thinking about real hedgehogs and the difficulties they face in the wild, and they really wanted to help.

“The kids were given a talk from a vet about how the sanctuary cares for hedgehogs and other animals who get injured or orphaned.

“It was great for the 
class to see the great work which charities such as Secret World do in our area.”
