These Crouch End primary school pupils got a big treat after working hard to raise money to help some of the world’s poorest communities.
Coleridge Primary School pupils got a special screening of Arrietty, a film based on Mary Norton’s The Borrowers, to recognise the hard work they put in all last week to raise as much money as possible for Water Aid, a charity which aims to improve access to safe water in developing countries.
The children ran their own charity shop, had a ‘learn a skill’ day and a ‘wear blue to school’ day.
The Crouch End Hill school youngsters also designed their own posters for Arietty.
But the film, shown by charitable pop-up collective the Flicker Club, was not the only treat.
The children also enjoyed a visit from CBBC presenter Cerrie Burnell and Horrible Histories’ Matthew Baynton.
