GREEN-FINGERED children at Chrishall Primary School took part in an Easter Garden competition to raise cash for charity.
The competition, which involved the youngsters designing their own miniature gardens in a pot, helped raised almost �170 for the children's nominated charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.
The show was judged by school governor Gordon Crabbe and garden designer Jill Foxley.
Mrs Foxley is working with Macmillan Cancer Support to design and build 'The Healing Garden' at this year's Hampton Court Flower Show.
