A charity calendar featuring drawings and stories by schoolchildren has been launched.

The Liberty, in Romford, is selling copies of the Story of Havering, which was created by 12 primary schools.

Each school took charge of a month, writing a 200-word tale and illustrating it with pictures.

The journey features the fictional characters Liberty and Jack, who make their way around Havering landmarks.

Proceeds from sales will go to Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Rainbow Trust.

Sofia Cetta, community fundraiser at the cancer charity, said: “This is an absolutely wonderful idea and our thanks go out to everyone involved.”

Kimberley Hawkins, corporate partnerships manager at the trust, said: “We are delighted. Thank you to the Liberty and the children at all of the schools for working so hard to put it together.”

Copies of the calendar are available at the customer service desk, with a recommended donation of £2.50 but no minimum amount.

Manager Jonathan Poole added: “We are so proud of the calendar. The teachers and pupils have worked very hard.

“It’s apparent when you read the story how fantastic the borough is and how proud the children are of their community.”
