Kids’ year of charity

THE year 2011 was a good one in terms of charity fundraising for the children at a Belper primary school.

Youngsters at St John’s Primary, on Laund Nook, raised £900 for Children In Need and £500 for children’s charity Barnado’s. They also filled 120 shoeboxes with goods which were sent to Romania for Christmas, and divided two car loads of food between two charities.
