Birdham schoolchildren raise cash for national charity

A PRIMARY school in Birdham has raised £556 for Children on the Edge.

Joe Osmend and Saya Patel, head boy and head girl at Birdham Primary School, presented a representative from the charity Beckie Saunders, with the cheque.

She said the money would provide school books and supplies for up to 150 children as well as pay for one teacher for a whole year in a country where education is expensive.

Headteacher Mark McCadden said it was a ‘great achievement’.
