A group of primary school pupils had a sleepover in their school hall to raise money for the homeless.
Once everyone else had left for the weekend, 44 Year 5 girls from St Albans High School Prep in Wheathampstead stayed behind for the charity sleepover.
Each girl spent the night sleeping on a cardboard box to try to “walk a mile in a homeless person’s shoes” and to support the homeless charity Crisis.
Headmistress Judy Rowe said: “It was good for the girls to think about the difficulties that homeless people face daily. I was really pleased that they worked so hard to raise lots of money for this really important project.”
The girls raised £1,950.08 in total for the charity.
