CHILDREN at Woodham Walter Primary School held an “Inspirational Day” in the aid of charity.

The pupils came to school dressed as the person they would like to be when they’re older, and were told to think about those that would be an inspiration for their future careers.

The day was in the aid of the David Randall Foundation in Maldon.

Costumes ranged from famous writers to doctors and hairdressers.

Pupile Sophie said: “We remembered David Randall who was the cricketer who died. He tried hard, and managed to be a really good cricketer”

Another pupil Luca said: “I came dressed up as someone from the bomb disposal unit as I'd like to save some lives. I'd risk mine for other people.”

Sophia said: “I love horse riding and I love jumping, so I came as a show jumper. I'd like to be a famous show jumper one day.”

The pupils raised a total of £109.40 for the foundation, which was selected as the cause by the school council.
