BOOK worms in the Royston area have been celebrating World Book Day.
At Barrington Primary School, pupils collected cash for Book Aid, the day's official charity, which sends books to disadvantaged children in 12 African countries.
They raised �85.85.
Teacher Jill Davies said: "The children made a big map of Africa and brought in coins to cover it with. We're very pleased with the amount we raised considering we're such a small school."
Book tents were also set up in each class, while in the afternoon adults working at the school read their favourite children's books to pupils.
