Play area cash plan is in the bag.
Whitley Abbey School, in Ashington Grove, Whitley, is in need of a new secure playing area for its reception class and it's all hands to the pump.
Head teacher Nancy Starritt said: "Each of the 170 pupils has been given a bag with pounds 1 in it with the promise to try and turn it into pounds 5 through sponsorship."
Mrs Starritt herself has been given a giant swag bag to try to fill.
The school will launch an appeal for the pounds 30,000 play area next month.
