Pupils and staff at Hereward Primary School in Loughton got their charity caps on to help support a worthwhile cause.
They arrived for school in their favourite headwear and made donations to the charity CLIC-Sargent.
Their efforts raised £340.
The leading cancer charity for children and young people provides clinical, practical, financial and emotional support for patients and their families after diagnosis.
Headteacher Matt Woolard said: “Last year we sadly lost one of our loved members of staff to cancer and saw the devastating effect this had on her family.
“We are proud to help raise money for such a worthwhile charity in order to help support families at difficult times when a loved one is suffering from a serious illness.”
