Royal Latin School in Buckingham raised more than £1,500 for Children in Need through a day of activities.

Students were able to wear their own clothes instead of uniform for a day in return for donating £1.

During morning break, students then held cake sales and ran a mile of money activity, plus card games and a guess how many sweets are in the jar.

The fun continued at lunchtime as a team of Sixth Form students took on a staff team in the Children in Need netball match.

It was a close game with a few bruises but was played in a great spirit, with the staff team coming out victorious to win 4-2.

A school spokesman said: “As the day drew to a close some of the Year Nine students counted the donations and were delighted by one of the highest ever totals at the school of £1531.79 which we know will be put to good use by Children In Need.”

Other schools across Buckingham also did their bit for this very worthy cause.

The Buckingham School held a non-uniform day raising £824, to follow up their fundraising earlier in the year for Macmillan when they raised £745.79 through a cake sale and donations.

Elsewhere, Bourton Meadow Academy raised £916.90 through a mufti day and other activities which included a duck race.

Two Year Six pupils also held a cake sale for staff and raised £40.05 through this.

At Lace Hill Academy pupils had a mufti day and did work in class where they learned more about Children in Need and were encouraged to celebrate differences.
