KIND-HEARTED pupils at St Peter's School wore an array of weird and wonderful hats - all part of a fun-filled day to raise money for the Haiti earthquake appeal.
Children put on fancy headgear for the fundraiser which was held last Friday, January. The school raised �260.
Headteacher Sally Roberts said: "The children designed the hats on their own. They were really great.
"Assemblies were held that week where we discussed what had happened in Haiti so they knew what the day was for. Children were naturally very touched and concerned."
A nine-year-old Budleigh youngster, meanwhile, is putting his best foot forward to raise money for people affected by the earthquake.
Jack Woodthorpe, who attends St Peter's, will walk from Budleigh to Lyme Regis - a distance of more than 20 miles - to raise money for Save the Children's Haiti appeal.
