Bad Hair Day at Croftlands Infant School
Last updated at 16:36, Monday, 16 February 2009
CHILDREN at an Ulverston school put their imaginations to the test to raise money for a worthy cause.
Pupils at Croftlands Infant School donned pigtails, spikes and backcombs on Friday in aid of Eden House Children’s Hospice in Carlisle.
Others opted to wear crazy wigs or sport messy locks and bright colours in their hair to generate as much cash as possible for the centre’s 2009 Bad Hair Day.
Drivers had to do a double take as they passed the Oakwood Drive school and saw youngsters looking wacky in time to start lessons.
Last year, some 28 schools around Cumbria took part in the event - helping to raise £13,204 for Eden House Hospice funds.
It is hoped the amount will be even higher this year once sponsorship money is collected and handed in.
Eden House Children’s Hospice was opened in 2007 after a successful campaign called the Jigsaw Appeal.
All money raised in aid of the hospice or donations made are put towards its £550,000 a year operating costs.
