Pupils in Clevedon have raised £1,700 to buy new books.
Youngsters at Yeo Moor Primary School, in Kennaway Road, baked hundreds of cakes to take part in a book bake-off to help raise funds.
They also read books during a sponsored silence.
Headteacher Roland Lovatt said: “The children have done absolutely amazingly.
“We are delighted with this figure and the pupils had great fun in raising the money.”
