TORPOINT schoolchildren raised more than £300 to support people affected by the Philippines typhoon.

The school council at Carbeile Junior School held a cake sale after class to raise money for the Cornish disaster-relief charity ShelterBox.

The charity, based in Helston, has been assisting with the relief effort after typhoon Haiyan three weeks ago.

The fundraiser was well supported by pupils, staff and parents at the school, with many baking cakes and donating money for the cause.

Teacher Natasha Pasmore said: "The school is delighted with how much we have raised in just half an hour selling cakes and drinks at 50p.

"The children have been really keen to support those who have been affected by the Philippines disaster and they have done really well with this fundraising event."

The money raised will be enough to fund a shelter for a whole family as well as a warmth and protection kit provided by ShelterBox.
