Going wild for sanctuary
They might only be six and seven, but three young champions of the natural world encouraged their whole school to go wild for charity.
Isla Hardwick, Scarlett Adams and Talia Simpson, who are all in Year 2 at Smarden Primary, followed up a successful cake sale by persuading their fellow pupils to wear animal costumes on Thursday last week.
Tigers, gorillas and foxes were just some of the creatures that trotted into the school to raise more than £250 for the nearby Wildlife Heritage Foundation.
The animal sanctuary, in Headcorn Road, helps preserve cats both large and small as part of the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme. Below, some of the children from Owls class dressed up as animals in aid of the Wildlife Heritage Foundation
