Gallions pupils pulling the strings

GALLIONS Primary School has raised an amazing �2,600 to buy instruments for their music programme in a grand winter draw.

The Gallions Music Programme gives every child in the school in Warwall, East Beckton, the opportunity to learn to play a stringed instrument.

Gallions is aiming to raise �50,000 to continue to develop the scheme over the next year.

The school is using a shopping website, featuring major retailers such as Amazon, Tesco and Marks & Spencer, to boost its fundraising efforts.

A percentage of the price of goods on the site is donated to the programme.
