Schoolchildren from Abbey Road Primary School have raised £94.74 for the charity Oxfam Unwrapped.
Year two class teacher, Cherry Marshall, told the West Bridgford Local News: “Our whole school topic this year was Going Global.
“The children enjoyed learning about different cultures and communities, famous architects and their amazing designs and finally the UN children’s rights.
“The children learnt how Oxfam helps others to help themselves.
“Year two pupils decided to write to their parents, asking them to help them to raise money by doing jobs and chores rather than just donating.
“We are so proud of year two for raising £94.74 by washing cars, dusting, hoovering and many other useful tasks.
“We walked down to Oxfam in West Bridgford to spend our money on items from the unwrapped gifts section.
“The children chose to buy a chicken, two piles of poo, two clean water kits, a honey bee hive, education for a child and food for a family of four.
“They have learnt so much which will have a real and lasting impact on both the children themselves and those they are helping to beat poverty for good.”
