HELPING to give hunger the boot are thoughtful children from Petersfield Infant School.

The youngsters from the St Peter's Road school in the town put on their wellies, rolled up their sleeves and raised a wheelbarrow-load of cash for two charities courtesy of their annual harvest festival.

Pupils got together to raise funds for Farm Africa and its life-changing work in eastern Africa, which is helping farmers grow themselves out of poverty and "give hunger the boot" forever, as well as boosting the coffers of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The cash – some £223.06 – was raised through a produce stall at the caring school, with children donating items to sell.

An assembly featuring prayers from Father Tom from nearby St Peter's Church and songs and performances from all the year groups rounded off the harvest celebrations.
