North West Norfolk MP James Wild will be supporting Howard Junior School’s fundraising efforts in aid of native Australian wildlife tomorrow.

Mr Wild will be joining in with the pupil’s charity cake sale at 10am as the school raise funds for Wires, a charity rescuing native Australian wildlife in distress due to the wildfires disaster.

Headteacher Gregory Hill said: “We like to do everything to high standards at Howard Junior and for James to work with the children is incredible.

“He has seen our work on Twitter and said he wants to come down and help out.”

The newly elected MP will also be given a tour of the school, which has previously covered a giant koala bear drawing with coins for Wires, who are based in New South Wales.

Mr Wild said: “ I’ve been incredibly impressed by the passion of the pupils at Howard Junior school to help respond to the terrible Australian wildfires.

“Their creative efforts to raise money to help wildlife and to raise awareness of the need to act on climate change have been an inspiration across West Norfolk.

“I’m delighted to go and meet the pupils and recognise the positive impact they’ve had and to talk about protecting our environment. I’m looking forward to sampling some tasty cakes too!”
