STACKING UP THE CASH: CHILDREN at Crosshall Infant School raised over �400 (and still counting) for the Teenage Cancer Trust when they took part in a sponsored stacking event over three days.
The youngsters tried to stack groups of nine cups - three sets of three - in the shortest possible time. The younger children were given three minutes to create as many stacks as they could and the older children were given five minutes.
Stacking is an American phenomenon used to raise money for charity, but it is also thought to improve children's co-ordination.
School spokesman Vanessa Parker told The Hunts Post: "The children loved it. All 360 children took part and we will use the stacking cups for other activities in the school."

The event was held in memory of former Crosshall Infants pupil Tom Walker, who died of cancer aged 26 in March and had been treated at Addenbrooke's Hospital, where the Teenage Cancer Trust is raising money to build a dedicated unit for teenagers.
