HOMEMADE cakes, a plant sale and a raffle helped children at the Rosary Primary School raise more than £200 for their garden.

Staff, parents and pupils celebrated two years of the school allotment area with a garden party on Friday.

Delicious cakes made by pupils from the baking club were sold while families bought pumpkin seeds to take part in a growing competition later in the year.

Gina Wilson, one of the organisers, said: "The money will go towards plants and seeds for the garden.

"All the children benefit from growing vegetables and learning about the wildlife.

"It was a lovely day and I want to thank the team of lunch supervisors and everyone who helped."
