A young boy was so touched by television footage he saw of people Haiti that he organised a special cake sale to raise money for them.
Nathaniel Laker, a 10-year-old Colman Junior School pupil, arranged the two-day sale with the help of his classmates Cameron Preston, Britany Thompson, Lucy Dixon-Sell, Daniel Saunders and Micha Brown.
More than 100 cakes were sold at the fundraising event and �145.70 was raised, with the children charging between 5p and 20p for a slice.
Nathaniel said: 'When I saw the people in Haiti on television, they looked extremely poor, so I wanted to do something to help. I decided to ask the school if I could run a cake sale.
