A PRIMARY school has teamed up with a pub to raise more than £2000 for Ukraine.

Year 6 captains from Neroche Primary School in Broadway raised £800 and with the help of a quiz evening held at The Bell pub a total of £2515 was raised for Ukrainian Relief.

The primary school pupils raised funds with an after-school fayre with lots of different stalls.

Sarah Buttle, the school administrator, said: “The Year 6 captains decided they wanted to do something to help Ukraine.

“They arranged a meeting with the local pub as they were interested as well. The students met The Bell staff and had a chat about what they could do to raise as much as they could.

“It all happened within a couple of weeks. It was amazing to raise that amount in such a short time.”
