Hindu and Sikh pupils from the Grammar School at Leeds have raised £10,000 for schools in rural India and Nepal.

The money, raised over the past six years, is for the ‘One Teacher Schools’ projects, called Saraswati Vidyalaya, run by The 3Rs Education Trust UK.

Their fundraising efforts will help run 14 schools, giving 500 children an education.

Pupils raised the cash by running food, arts and crafts stalls, variety shows and cookery evenings.

A charity worker visited the school to thank the pupils and teacher Michael Parkinson for their work.
