Dick Van Dyke, Mary Poppins and Olly Murs were just a few of the celebrities that the children at Stathern Primary School dressed up as to raise funds to replace their garden grass mats with artificial turf.

Members of the school council asked other youngsters at the school to impersonate their favourite celebrity characters for the day for a small donation which raised £78.60.

Headteacher Troy Jenkinson said: “The school council need to raise around £10,000. They realise this is a lot of money but have kickstarted their funds with a fantastic day.”

In the past the children have also raised funds to change their outdoor play equipment, install a water coolcer and purchase hand driers for the toilets.

The school are grateful to anyone who can help with their fundraising.
