YOUNGSTERS from a Scarborough school were jumping for joy after their sterling efforts left a charity buoyant with success.

The children from Cayton Primary School raised £880 for Cayton Ladies Lifeboat Guild after holding a sponsored skipping challenge.

The youngsters were each tasked with skipping for a minute to raise funds for the Lifeboat SOS Day, with all money generated going towards helping to fund local lifeguard provision.

Gail Howley, chairman of Cayton Ladies Lifeboat Guild, said she was delighted with the children’s efforts.

She added: “We approached the school and asked if they would be willing to take part and to raise that much was absolutely brilliant.”
