A primary school started the countdown to Christmas by raising more than £1,000 at its festive fair.
Hanging Heaton School helped put everyone in the festive mood with their event last Friday.
Pupils, parents and staff attended to enjoy stalls, tombolas, games and a visit from Santa.
The final total is expected to be more than £1,000, which will go towards a new Key Stage 2 playground.
Head teacher Janet Thompson said: “All the pupils really enjoyed it and everyone had a fantastic afternoon.”
