SCHOOL pupils heading to Malawi next month to help some of the world's poorest children have raised a staggering £10,000.

Twenty pupils of Marshland High School, West Walton will travel to the east African country on July 3 and will spend three weeks helping to build classrooms and improve facilities in the town of Nkhotakota.

The money has been raised through various fund-raising activities since September.

Their efforts have led to them winning a Cambs Times and Wisbech Standard Kids Are Alright award.

This week the pupils received the support of Hungate Rovers Football Club who have donated football strips for them to give to the Malawian children.

The Malawian project began in Henry Gotch Comprehensive School, Kettering in 1997 and was taken to the West Walton school in 2003.
