Children at Manorbook primary school have been interviewed on BBC Radio Bristol about their role in the station’s Alive Appeal.

The appeal is aiming to raise £50,000 to make a difference to the lives of older people through various local initiatives. 

Pupils were visited by presenter Joe Lemer, who joined in with some air guitar playing before interviewing them about the Paint Pals project. It involved the children visiting a local care home where they worked together on different art projects with residents. 

Manorbrook’s Head Teacher Darren Stanley said: “We really wanted to help the children develop important relationships with older people within the community.”

The event was also a non-uniform day, when children wear home clothes in return for a financial donation.  The school raised over £115 for the appeal.
