CRAZY, colourful wellies were created by children in Pill as part of efforts to raise money for a good cause.

Youngsters at Crockerne Primary School made the creations and also held a cake sale to help fund a visit from a South African dance and drama group called Zakhele.

The group, whose members dance in gumboots, is due to come to North Somerset in the summer when they will run workshops with schoolchildren.
