MORE than 350 pupils at Westbury Leigh Primary School showed their support to UNICEF by taking part in this year's Soccer Aid Fundraiser.

The £200 raised by the school will be doubled by the Government to help change the lives of children worldwide who don’t have easy access to their human rights.

For example, Article 31 gives them the right to relax and play and take part in a range of activities.

The children showed their support by donating money to wear their favourite football kits and sportswear.

They took part in a wide range of lunch time football-themed obstacle courses set up by Year 6 pupils.

The school also hosted a Father’s Day lunch on Friday, June 14 so dads were able to take part in the fundraiser with their children.

The father of one Year 4 child said: “It was so nice to be able to take part in different activities with my child after having such a lovely lunch cooked in the Love Leigh Diner."

Year 6 pupil Lilly-Ella, who helped set up the event, said “That was such a success, we should do things like this more often.”

Organiser Mrs Rachel Atwill said: “It was so lovely to see all children from across the age ranges take part.

"Children were engaged, excited and enthusiastic and couldn’t wait for lunch time.”
