Pupils at a Welwyn Garden City primary school got into their sports gear to raise money for Sport Relief.
Holwell Primary School in Welwyn Garden City had a non-uniform day to raise money for the charity.
The children got to come into school either wearing bright red or sport-themed clothes of their choice, and each donated £1.
Nearly all the pupils in the school also took part in a fitness circuit in the afternoon.
Headteacher Joe McIntyre said: “The children look amazing, although we have far too many Arsenal tops for my liking.

“They’ve all brought in money and we have been finding out where the money goes.”
