SCHOOL pupils celebrate after raising money hundreds of pounds for charity.

Year 11 pupils at Elfed High School, Buckley, have been busy drumming up business for the Frost Fair that they hosted on December 20, which was the first of its kind.

It was organised by the students for their Welsh Baccalaureate Community Challenge Coursework and working in teams they had to choose a charity to promote before creating their games and activities.

A spokesman for the school said: "The event, the first of its kind to run at Elfed, was a huge success.

"Years Seven and Eight came to support the work of the Year 11's and enjoyed the fun of the fair, knowing proceeds were all for good causes.

"Games that the students designed included Christmas Tin Can Alley, Balance the Coin on the Lemon, Blitzen's Ball Game, Find the Egg Yolk, Hit the Balloon and Guess where the Dogs Bone is buried. Great fun was had by all."

Over £500 was raised for Cancer Research UK, Almost Home Dog Rescue, Daffodils, The Rainbow Trust, Macmillan Cancer Support and The Dogs Trust.
