Children and staff at a Todmorden primary school dressed down to raise £195 for a charity appeal.

Pupils and teachers at Shade Primary School dressed in denim for their lessons to back Jeans for Genes Day, an annual event to support children with genetic disorders.

Everybody made a donation on the non-uniform day and special keyrings were sold.

A school spokesperson said it was a good day.
