50 children took to the ice at Alexandra Palace for charity today.

Pupils from Norfolk House School got their skates and fancy dress on to raise money for Comic Relief.

The 4-6 year olds performed a routine inspired by the film “Happy Feet” to paying parents.

The money raised from ticket sales will go towards the cause, whilst Alexandra Palace has also donated the entrance fee, making a total of £160 for the event.

Teacher Deborah Gormley was delighted by the performance, one of many fundraisers the school has put on this Red Nose Day. She said: “Considering the children only started practising last week, they’ve done really well. It’s brilliant. It’s also lovely to see all the parents supporting.”

The school are hoping to raise more money from sponsored sports and cake sales held today, but won’t know their grand total until next week.
