A PRE-SCHOOL in Wantage has raised more than £8,700 towards rebuilding its garden.

Staff at charity-run Charlton Acorns, which offers early year care, felt the garden was vital for its children, but in a state of disrepair.

Through several fundraising events, including family fundays, raffles, non-uniform days and cake sales, they school raised an impressive £4,386.25.

Santander, which made the school its quarterly charity, then matched the total.
