YOUNGSTERS entertained frantic shoppers on Thursday (December 8) to raise money for a charity set up in their school friend’s name.
The Sompting Village Primary School choir raised more than £116 for the Freddy Smile Children’s Cancer Charity after they sang in the foyer of Sainsbury’s, Lyons Farm.
Julie Dunn, from the school, in White Styles Road, said: “The choir sang for about 45 minutes and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves singing to the public.
“Freddy Smile is our chosen charity this year as Freddy is one of our pupils so anything we can do to highlight the cancer charity we will do.”
Freddy Street’s mum, Kelly, said: “Sompting Village Primary School has also had its nativity play this week and has kindly decided to donate the retiring collection to Freddy Smile.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to the head master, Richard Cave, and all the staff for their support this past year.”
