PUPILS at a Doncaster school swapped classrooms for a market stall for a day to sell hand-crafted goods to raise money for an intrepid expedition.

Hall Cross Academy youngsters pitched their handmade wares to the town’s shoppers after Doncaster Council gave them a stall free of charge.

By selling bird boxes, cards and other items, pupils raised £120 towards their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition.

Jane Flynn of Hall Cross said: “They did really well. More than 30 pupils are taking on the award this year.

“They’re planning to complete the expedition in the Yorkshire Dales and wanted to raise money.

“Many of them have chosen woodwork as a skill as part of the award scheme, so they chose to make bird boxes and sell them to help fund their trip next year.”
