PUPILS at a Blyth school went potty for a charity fundraiser.

The youngsters at New Delaval Primary raised more than £100 for the Marie Curie ‘Mini Pots of Care’ initiative at their school.

And the final total of £103.19 was an increase of more than £20 from their 2010 figure.

The children planted daffodil bulbs in the autumn and then cared for them over the winter at home and returned them on the school’s ‘Pots of Care Day’, when everyone wore something yellow, pictured.

There were prizes for the tallest daffodil and for the best outfits in each Key Stage.

In addition there were awards for the best ‘pot wrapper’, with the school winner’s wrapper being sent to London for a national competition.
