Several schools in Havering have been showing support for England to win the upcoming Euro 2020 final on Sunday.
Drapers’ Academy in Harold Hill allowed students and staff to wear red and white in support of England and also in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research.
To raise funds staff and pupils were given the option to swap one regular item of clothing for something red or white.
Principal Darren Luckhurst said: “It has been great to see the pupils getting so engaged and excited for the games.
“There has been a chorus of ‘Three Lions’ sung across the playgrounds all week.
