Pupils and staff at Pendle Primary School chose to wear clashing colours, a plethora of patterns and some odd shoes to raise money for a local good cause.

After seeing the devastation caused locally by the Boxing Day floods in Whalley, members of the School Council decided to do something to help and voted to hold a “Bad Taste Day” to raise money to help those that were affected.

The day of alternative fashion raised over £365. The total amount of money now raised by the school for victims of the winter floods is £1,365, as donations given by family and friends who watched the various school Christmas performances was sent to help those who had been affected by the earlier December floods in Cumbria.
