Pupils shed uniforms to help flood victims.

SCHOOLCHILDREN have done their bit to help victims of the Calderdale Floods.

Pupils at Reinwood Junior School, near Marsh, took part in a non-uniform day and raised PS357 for the Calderdale Flood Relief Appeal.

The school was one of many taking part in similar events to boost the cash flow to flood victims.

At least 2,000 homes in the Calder Valley were badly affected by the Boxing Day floods. and about 200 businesses were hit.

The Flood Relief fund was set up earlier to support people affected by previous flooding.

In 2012 the fund, run by the Community Foundation for Calderdale, awarded over PS150,000 to those affected.

Money from the appeal goes towards providing cleaning up materials, support with emergency accommodation, supporting the costs of cleaning up and getting furniture and white goods.
