A primary school has raised £1,000 to send doctors to fight Ebola.

Pupils at Hampstead Hill School, at St Stephen’s Church in Pond Street, Hampstead, brought in money from their parents and sold cakes to raise funds for King College London’s Ebola Appeal.

The money will be used to send specialist doctors to Sierra Leone to treat patients with Ebola.

Their efforts were part of a drive by Hampstead lawyer Jessica Learmond-Criqui to encourage Camden schools to raise money for the appeal

Pupils also brought in toiletries and toys for women and children living in refuge, and tins of food for elderly residents of Hampstead’s Henderson Court.

Headteacher Andrea Taylor said: “We are very proud of not just the children, but the parents for contributing wholeheartedly.”
