Pupils and staff at a Fylde coast school brightened the finances of the North West Air Ambulance by £260.93 – by dressing in yellow for the day.

The fund-raising effort in aid of this year’s St Annes Carnival charity was designed to be reminiscent of the NWAA helicopters’ bright yellow livery.

It provided a further boost to the funds already raised for the charity by Carnival Queen Hannah Jeffrey, who is a Year 6 pupil at Mayfield Primary School in St Annes, and was proud to take part in the event with her schoolmates.

Headteacher Suzanne Fish said: “The children looked fantastic in their yellow outfits.

“Friday’s assembly was all about the work of the Air Ambulance, including pictures of the helicopter from a previous visit to our school.

“That visit a few years ago was memorable for everyone and we were delighted when we heard that Hannah’s year as Carnival Queen would be in support of the North West Air Ambulance.
