Croxley Green pupils who have been brainstorming ways to help a classmate walk again are inviting schools across south west Hertfordshire to take part in a non-uniform day.

Yorke Mead’s school council have arranged for their primary school to have a mufti day on February 14 to support the Help Noah Walk campaign.

Four-year-old Noah Collins has cerebral palsy and has been accepted to have an operation in America which will help him walk, but his family needs to raise £80,000 for the procedure.

Pupils at the Dulwich Way school have organised a non-uniform day and would like other schools to do the same in order to help their classmate "walk tall amongst his friends".

Ethan Sutton, a Year 6 school council member, said: "It’s a good idea. We take walking for granted and we want Noah to have the opportunity to walk tall amongst his friends, so the school council at Yorke Mead are asking all the kids in the area to donate a little of what they can through a non-school uniform day because team work makes the dream work.

"We hope that the schools team up and make it happen."

Any schools who are interested in co-ordinating a non-uniform day with Yorke Mead can contact Debbie Massey on 01923 778420.
