Highgate schoolchildren dress in Sierra Leone flag colours to help fight Ebola
Children dressed in the colours of the Sierra Leone flag to raise £800 to help fight Ebola in west Africa.
Pupils at Brookfield Primary School in Chester Road, Highgate, wore the national colours of Ebola-ridden Sierra Leone – green, blue and white – and put on a cake sale on Friday.
The school had so many cakes to sell that parents and children held another sale of any unsold items in Swain’s Lane at the weekend.
All money raised is for the the King College London’s Ebola Appeal, which uses funds to send specialist doctors to Sierra Leone.
The children voted as a school to raise funds for the appeal by wearing the flag’s colours and holding a cake sale.
