Pupils find out what it's like to be blind
PUPILS and staff at Tatworth Primary School who raised more than £1,600 for a Somerset charity have handed over the cheque.
Representatives from Somerset Sight visited the school to receive the £1,660.77 donation and personally thank the pupils who helped raise it.
The charity also brought an array of glasses for pupils to try on which show what it is like to have different types of blindness.
The school raised the money with a string of successful Christmas productions.

School spokeswoman Linda Kellaway said: "We did not charge for admission to our six performances but asked parents and friends to donate.
"The children also sell Christmas stamps for the delivery of internal cards and the staff make a collection instead of sending cards.
"The largest collection was made at the final performance which, for the past nine years, has taken place at Cricket St Thomas. Thank you to everyone who contributed."
Somerset Sight provides services, training and activities to help maintain independence and improve quality of life for those hit by sight loss.
