Two Thames Ditton pupils have raised £54.15 for the Princess Alice Hospice by holding a teddy bear and book sale at their school.

Weston Green School pupils Jemima Dunn and Jess Quinton, both 10, brought their takings to the Hospice, where each was presented with a certificate to mark their donation.

The two pupils set up shop in the school playground during breaktime, with homemade cakes and traybakes, teddy bears and books.

The pair collected donations and publicised the event at an assembly and through posters scattered around the school.

Jess, who lives in Thames Ditton, said: “My Mum’s friend works at the Hospice, and my nan is a keen charity shop customer.

“We especially like going to the Molesey shop where a man sometimes plays the piano.”

Jemima said: “We were surprised by the success of the sale, with keenest customers being years 2, 3 and 4.”

Weston Green School supports Princess Alice Hospice as one of four charities chosen this year.
