A WARTIME street party was held at a Hammersmith primary school to help raise money for permanent World War Two memorial in Hyde Park.
A morning rain forecast meant staff and pupils, in traditional 1940s dress, at Bentworth Primary School set up the party indoors with activity stalls and a small choir performing a medley from the decade.
Money raised from donations and sales of lemonade, tea & biscuit, cakes and toffee apples went to the Bomber Command Memorial Fund.
The charity are desperately trying to raise £2m by the end of the year to build the memorial to honour the 55,573 men of Bomber Command who were killed during the war.
Jemma Crawley, teacher and organiser, said: "It went really well and very happy with it. We had positive feedback from parents and members of the community who popped along.
"In the end we managed to raise £500 which for this school is an amazing total."
