Charitable pupils from a Plaistow primary school organised a day of fundraising for Save the Children’s Ebola campaign.

School councillors at New City Primary School asked their headteacher if they could hold a school disco, non-uniform day and cake sale on Friday, raising £400.

Their fundraising efforts also included encouraging their fellow pupils to cover a giant map of Africa with coins.

Headteacher David Wareham said: “I am very proud that the pupils wanted to help this cause.

“I am delighted by the support shown by the local community.”
