Pupils at Honiton Primary School held a ‘donate your small change day’ last week to alter children’s lives.

The youngsters took part with pupils from thousands of schools across the country by taking part in UNICEF UK’s Day for Change.

The nationwide scheme raises money to help the charity protect millions of vulnerable children worldwide

Nic Lopez, of Honiton Primary School, said: “‘The generosity of our school community always amazes us and shows just how much we care about children around the world who are less fortunate than ourselves.

“Our school donation to UNICEF will help provide clean drinking water, shelter, and medicine to the most vulnerable children.

“We are still counting all our ‘coppers’, but we hope to raise in excess of £200.”
