YOUNGSTERS showed their colours at a charity rainbow day.

Pupils at Siddal Primary School donned their reds, greens, yellows and violets, to raise money for the Noah’s Ark Centre, Ovenden, Halifax.

Children paid to go without school uniform and played games including bingo. They also enjoyed buns supplied by the school’s Year 1 class.

Pastoral worker Donna Myer, said: “The idea came from the School Council. Some have used the service and found out it was run on a voluntary basis so wanted to help out.”

The Noah’s Ark charity provides support and advice to young people and adults across Calderdale. It s cafe is open weekdays 8am until 2pm.
