Around 140 students at Thomas Eaton in Wimblington climbed the equivalent of more than six and a half times the height of the London landmark to raise money.

PTA treasurer Anne Appleby said: “Children, teachers and us PTA had a go, it was a fantastic day.

“The idea was to have a sponsored event with a bit more adrenaline to it and I think this definitely ticked the box.”

Peterborough-based firm Outstanding Events rigged up the 7.2 metre high wall for the day in the school grounds for what proved to be a popular PTA fund raiser.

The next fund raiser is a bag pack at Sainsbury’s and the summer fayre in July.
