ABOUT £1,000 was raised by pupils at St Martin’s Catholic School in Emmer Green taking part in a special sponsored walk.
About 170 children wearing coloured T-shirts walked about a mile around Clayfield Copse before forming a rainbow.
A picture was then taken from above using a drone. More than 30 members of staff and parents helped.
Teacher Rachel Hudson said: “Each year group had a different colour and we explained to the children that in our classes we were just a single colour but when we joined together to form the rainbow we would all create something amazing as a whole school family — an important value we instill in our children.
“The event was a great success due to the incredible support of the St Martin’s community, families and friends.”
The proceeds will go towards new markings on the playground at the school in Kingsway.
