Children at Sawtry Infant School raised more than £1,300 in support of CanTech search and rescue dogs by thinking small.
The money was raised through the Smartie Box Challenge. Each child had to see how many different items they could fit into the box.
One boy managed to fit more than 112 items in his box.
The children raised £1,317.25, which was presented to Chris and Paul Tedder, from CanTech, who visited the school with Echo, a Russian terrier and Charlie, a newfoundland puppy. They visited each class and showed the children how the dogs are trained and how they follow scent.
