A SCHOOL in Andover held a successful day of fundraising to mark this year's Comic Relief.

On Friday, March 15, Rookwood School organised a series of engaging activities for students, bringing joy and laughter while also raising vital funds and help for charitable causes.

One of the highlights of the day was non-school uniform, where pupils enthusiastically donned various red items instead in support of Comic Relief.

A minimum donation of £1 was encouraged, and the sea of red clothing was a vibrant testament to the pupils' generosity and spirit.

Adding to the excitement was the Cereal Domino Rally, a creative and collaborative idea that involved every pupil bringing in a box of cereal to create a large domino effect.

The activity not only brought smiles but also contributed to a meaningful cause. All 250 cereal boxes used in the rally will be donated to Andover Food Bank, aiding local families in need.

Deputy head at Rookwood School, Liz Hacker, said: "We are thrilled with the overwhelming response and enthusiasm shown by our pupils and staff for this year's Comic Relief activities.

"It's incredibly heartwarming to see our school come together once again to make a positive difference in the lives of others, both locally and globally. Many thanks to all our parents for making this possible."
