PEOPLE GIRL HELPS SCHOOL HIT BY TORNADO.

SHIP- SHAPE: I'll need the use of this wooden boat, to help me get my mission afloat

WONGA Woman this week sails in to rescue a school that was badly damaged by a freak tornado.

Medmerry Primary School in Selsey on the West Sussex coastline had to close after it was devastated by recent storms. But pounds 250 worth of wonga soon brought a smile to the faces of headmaster George Bell and his 213 pupils.

"When I got a call telling me a tornado had hit the school I thought it was a joke," said Mr Bell. But the winds had torn off roof-tops and shattered glass, causing pounds 70,000 worth of damage.

Dozens of workmen battled against the elements to repair the damage and the school was eventually re-opened after extensive re-plumbing and re-wiring.

I AM also sending pounds 70 to Mrs Y Davies of Tipton, West Midlands, to put towards a pushchair for her six-year-old handicapped granddaughter; and pounds 30 to Mr Royston of Kingsmarsh, Bristol, for his son who was mugged and had a week's wages stolen.

But it's No Wonga to Mr J Thompson of Minehead, Somerset, who asked for pounds 250 to pay for a transvestite strip show on his stag night.

You dirty devil!

FIRST CLASS: Hello kids, yes it's me, I've come to save your school for free. Don't look sad a moment longer - feast your eyes on all this wonga

HANDS UP: Time for me to make a dash before the kids grab all my cash

WELL DONE: It is nothing Mr Bell, for The People's wonga gel

DONGA: How swell, the scarlet hand rings the bell
