St John’s CE Primary School in Warminster took part in The Dahlicious Dress Up Day recently, to raise vital funds for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.

The children donated £1 each to dress up as their favourite Roald Dahl character. The school was buzzing with Big Friendly Giants, Oompa-Loompas, Twits and all kinds of phizz-whizzing characters, and the day raised just under £100.

The charity helps seriously ill children by paying for specialist nurses, equipment and support.

Head Lyn Taylor said “This term our context for learning has been Discovering Dahl and so this seemed an ideal way to have some fun and raise much needed money for the charity. The children made a great effort.”
