Blackboys and Framfield pupils help children in Syria

Youngsters from Blackboys and Framfield schools spent yesterday learning about the conflict in Syria and donated loose change to help children there.

The primary schools, which are part of the St Thomas a Becket Federation, together raised funds for Unicef which is working to keep children warm and safe in the war torn country this winter.

There were assemblies and lessons throughout the day and at Blackboys Year Three children ran a cafe to boost fund-raising.
