Charity idea proves a hit.

A GROUP of pupils at a Rugby school were determined not to conk out in their quest for a smashing way to raise money for a good cause.

The youngsters from Rokeby Junior School, in Anderson Avenue, finally came up with the idea of collecting conkers and then selling them to family and friends.

The money they made was added to the total raised by the school by selling produce for the harvest festival.

It enabled the school to donate pounds 180 to the children's charity Barnardo's.

Pupils presented the cheque to Stephanie Dale, education fundraiser for the charity in the East Midlands.
