Primary school children enjoyed an action-packed week to round off their summer term.

Pupils at St Gilbert’s Primary School in Stamford took part in a reading challenge, a charity cake sale and a special art week.

Members of the school’s collective worship committee asked to stage the cake sale to raise money for people affected by the conflict in Ukraine. It raised £300.

A school spokesperson said: “We are incredibly proud of the children for how they thought about what they can do to help other people.

“We would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported the bake sale by either donating cakes or buying them.”

Children from across the school also took part in a reading challenge which was organised alongside Usborne books partner Sarah Freeman.

Zorba Stamford and C and B Welders each donated £100 to boost the funds and Usborne books donated books worth £797.

A spokesperson said: " The Ready Steady Read event took place to promote a love of books and reading for pleasure.

"It also raised money, allowing us to buy lots of beautiful new books for the classrooms and library, giving a significant boost to our reading material."
