A charity calendar created by Havering school children has been officially launched.
The Story of Havering storybook was made by The Liberty shopping centre and each of the 12 schools contributed their own chapter with fictional characters but real places from the borough.
On Friday teachers and staff from Clockhouse Primary School, Crownfield Infant School, Parklands Infant School and St Ursula’s Junior School attended the launch with Deputy Mayor of Havering, Cllr Linda Trew.
The Liberty’s events manager Laura Williams said: “We wanted to showcase this creative achievement in an official launch.
“Everyone has worked very hard to create this fantastic storybook calendar so we wanted to thank them at our event.
“The success of the calendar allows us as a community to give something back to two essential local charities.”
Headteacher Sharon Nacmias, from Crownfield Infant School, said: “The children had a fabulous time attending the launch of the calendar and felt so proud that their chapter of the story had been published.”
All proceeds from the calendar will go to the shopping centre’s charities of the year, Marie Curie Cancer Care (Essex) and the Rainbow Trust.
The calendar is priced £5 and is available from The Liberty’s customer service desk and the Charities of the Year area.
