Cromer Junior School takes part in the British Heart Foundation’s national “Wear Red Day”

Pupils from Cromer Junior School put on their red fancy dress today to help promote healthy hearts and raise money for charity.

Organised by cook manager Mary Osborne, Cromer Junior School took part in the British Heart Foundation's national 'Wear Red Day'.

From cowboy hats to fluffy ra-ra skirts more than 100 pupils and staff got into the spirit of the event by eating a healthy dinner and learning about diet and exercise.

Year six pupils George Cadman, 10, Kara Mason, 11, and Ellen Hedge, 11, helped to collect money on the day.

George said: 'It's been really interesting and really good - it's been a different experience.'

Ellen added that she had enjoyed not wearing her school uniform and Kara emphasised how important the day had been.

'It's been good raising money for the charity too,' she said.
