A NAILSEA pupil inspired her peers to attend lessons in their onesies to raise money for the Juveline Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
Anya, who is now in year six, was diagnosed with diabetes when she was in year two.
She wrote to all the parents and children at the school to ask them to come to lessons in their onesies and pyjamas in exchange for a £1 donation to the charity.
Families and Tesco in Nailsea also donated cakes to sell and year six pupils decorated biscuits for the cause.
JDRF leads research into the cure, prevention and treatment of diabetes and its complications.
