Pupils raise pounds 522 for victims of earthquake.
Pupils at Ash Trees Special Primary School in Billingham put together a special Help Haiti sale to raise funds for the good cause.
They brought in toys to sell and pocket money to spend at the event, with all proceeds going to Haiti.
They raised pounds 522.89 on the day.
Teacher Anne Petty said: "A lot of the children had seen footage of the earthquake at home and were affected by it. We talked about it in school and did some activities based around it, and they decided they wanted to do something to help."
Pupil Stephen Lambert, 11, said: "I sold books, videos and DVDs to get money for people in Haiti."
Some children made cakes to sell, and they held a raffle and tombola.
