ST ASAPH pupils have taken part in a sponsored swim to raise money for the Philippines.

Eleven children, aged between six and 10, from Fairholme School, St Asaph, swam a total of 20,500 metres to raise funds for the Disaster Emergency Committee's appeal for the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

One of the pupils James Webster, nine, helped organise the sponsored swim.
James’ mum, Victoria, said: “The children had originally planned to swim 12 km, but were all so enthusiastic on the day that they swam a very impressive total of 20,500 metres.

“The event organised by pupils has to date raised a total of over £1,500.”
