Pupils raise money for Asian orphans

CHILDREN at Cleve House school in Knowle collected clothes and shoes for two orphanages in Vietnam, inspired by ex-CBBC star Emma Weaver.

Emma, who is also a visiting speech and drama teacher at the Wells Road school, told pupils about her work with parentless children in Hoh Chi Min City. She has set up a charity, Saigon Kidz, with her husband Hugh.

Pupils rummaged at home for items of clothing and shoes that they no longer needed.

Children in Form 5 also held a bring and buy sale and gave half the takings – £80 – to the Vietnamese children.

Emma wrote to Cleve House, telling the children their money had been used to buy “lots of clothes, shoes and vast quantities of much needed food” – as well as Christmas presents.
