Kind hearted school girls Anna Thompson and Georgina East raised £174 for victims of the Somalia famine by staging a sale.

The pair sold old toys, books and homemade cakes.

Helped by friends, Erin and Keely James, they had a steady flow of customers throughout the morning despite intermittent rain and gusty winds, and were thrilled to have made so much money for Oxfam’s East Africa appeal.

Anna said: “We thought we might raise about £40. So we couldn’t believe it when we counted up all the notes and coins and it was £174.”

Georgina added: “We want to thank everyone who came along.

“Lots of people also gave donations. It was a great day and we are really pleased to have raised so much for the famine victims.”
