Traditional den building skills came out to play when pupils at Cavalry Primary took part in a special day to raise funds for children who do not have a safe space to sleep at night.

Children in the school and nursery took part in the Den Day thanks to donations from parents and local businesses.

The children built dens across the playground and school field using cardboard, bamboo canes, old blankets and tarpaulins.

They raised £524.85 for Save the Children which will help make life better for children around the world who don’t have a safe place to sleep at night.

In a separate event Year 6 pupils, led by Jacob Droy, held a sponsored silence yesterday with some of his friends.
