"Touched by their plea, the children of Kingfishers class have taken it upon themselves to raise money in an effort to save these wonderful animals. 

“Millions upon millions of pangolins have been lost to this crisis. We are running out of time to save them.”

Fauna and Flora is a charity that works to support rangers and save endangered animals like Pangolins. 

The children have made posters and delivered an assembly to the rest of the school; sharing their expert knowledge.

With the help of their teacher, Miss Boyagis and teaching assistant, Mrs Southern, the children have also organised a cake sale.

As if that wasn’t amazing enough, some of the children have also taken part in a 7.5-mile sponsored walk between Dinton and Wilton. 

So far, these admirable efforts have raised over £1,100.
