PUPILS at Shute Community Primary School brought a splash of colour to the classroom as they took part in Marie Curie Cancer Care's 'Mini Pots of Care' initiative on Friday, February 29.

Children were given a mini pot and a daffodil bulb to plant and nurture last autumn - to reflect the care Marie Curie gives to terminally ill patients.

On Friday the pupils brought in some of their recently bloomed pots and will take them home to someone they care about in return for a small donation to the charity.

Headteacher Amanda Graham said: "By taking part in this simple and fun activity the school has been learning about the fantastic work of the Marie Curie nurses and we hope to continue to raise money for worthwhile charities that have local connections."

The children are pictured with their 'mini pots'.
