Disco kids have a bash at beating cancer.

Youngsters have been raising cash for a good cause by having good fun at their school.

With a disco and fancy dress, together with events for their mums and dads, the children have thrown their weight behind the campaign to help research into bowel cancer.

A week-long series of events at the All Saints Primary School in Llanedeyrn, Cardiff, saw teachers and pupils backing the Beating Bowel Cancer charity.

Among the highlights of the week has been a competition among pupils to create the most colourful tie with a healthy eating message as part of the decoration.

Headteacher Angela Satterley said: 'The children and staff have really got behind this campaign. The message has been to eat healthily which can help to avoid the problem of bowel cancer. One of the highlights has been the disco where instead of the usual crisps, sweets and snacks the children were given bags a of grapes, dried fruit, water and fruit juice - it went down a treat,' said Angela.
