YOUNGSTERS have been helping to raise cash for charity by taking part in a large 'sleepover'.

The Class of 4F at Leek First School hosted the fund-raising event before the children broke up for the school holidays.

Eight-year-old Isla Kidd, who lives with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME), is over the moon that the class managed to raise more than £60 for The Association of Young People with ME.

Isla said: "We had a onesie afternoon to raise money for AYME – The Association of Young People with ME.

"We raised £63 and it was only my class taking part.

"Our teacher Mrs Finney organised lots of fun activities to do with the event."

Mrs Finney explained: "We made it into a learning experience throughout the week. On Monday the children designed sandwiches in Design & Technology.

"On Tuesday they wrote a descriptive voice-over for an advert for their sandwich in the style of an old Marks & Spencer's advert.

"On Wednesday they made their sandwiches and filmed their adverts on the iPads.

"In the afternoon they had their midnight feast and watched their adverts."

Isla added: "I was poorly so missed the preparation work, but I was there for the afternoon sleepover. It was great fun we were all dressed in our onesies and had blankets and Teddy bears.

"It was lovely and extra special because we have now all left Leek First School."
