Teachers sponged in the name of charity

TEACHERS at a Pill school were soaked by willing pupils as part of a week of activities held to raise money for charity.

As part of efforts to collect cash for Penny Brohn Cancer Care, teachers at Crockerne Primary School, Richard Hill and Charlotte Palmer, agreed to be sponged by pupils.

Members of the school’s England house held activities every day last week, which also included a non-uniform day, a cake sale, a raffle and washing teachers’ cars.

All proceeds will be donated to the Pill-based cancer charity, which provides complimentary care and therapy to those affected by the disease.
