MARSDEN Junior School pupils have been celebrating Christmas by raising money for charity.
Three year five pupils - Samantha Mitchell, Beth Haigh and Danny Morson - have been raising cash by making and selling Christmas cards.
Samantha, who had made a first batch of cards at home, joined forces with her two friends to make more of them.
They sold them at the school's Christmas fair and to staff and pupils in school.
All the money raised will be given to cancer charities.
Five year six pupils have also raised money for cancer charities.
Corey-Jo Hall, Charlotte Wisely, Amy Hamilton, Chloe Chapman and Ashley Shaw made and sold paper fortune-telling devices made using the Japanese art of origami (paper folding). These were sold in school and at the fair.
The school has also done its bit for charity.
It gave £150 from ticket sales for its Christmas production, Cinders, to homelessness charity Shelter. The rest of the proceeds from tickets went towards buying a new stage for the school.
