Lanesfield Primary School have raised money to fund a librarian in Ethiopia for 1 year thanks to a fantastic fund raising effort.
Working with the charity, Exeter Ethiopia Link, the school raised £247.89 when children dressed up as their favourite book character and made a donation.
The children, at the school in Calalaqii, only have lessons for either a morning or afternoon as it is not big enough to fit in all the children. As a consequence many children want to go to the library when they are not in school. This money will mean the library can open every day and will support 700 children every month.
Congratulations to all at Lanesfield Primary School who participated.
