Pupils who are desperate to help save a popular pantomime evening held a sweet sale to raise funds for the event.
A group of students at Northwood College in Maxwell Road, Northwood, held the sale in their lunch break last Thursday after they read about sister paper the Pinner Observer's campaign to save the Pinner Pantomime Evening.
Pupil Alex Singer, 16, said: "I was going to school one day and I noticed the Pinner Observer's front page saying the Pantomime might be taken out.
"I have been going there every year for 10 years and I love it. I love the way it brings the community together and the fireworks."
The event, which attracts about 10,000 and is now in its 16th year, was going to be axed because traders were refusing to fund it.
Thanks to the campaign and generous donations the event will definitely go ahead on November 27 as the minimum amount of £5,000 has been met.
Pinner Pantomime Committee member, Sharon Pink, of Tolcarne Drive, Northwood Hills, said: "We will be able to have the fireworks and everything we would normally associate with the pantomime, but if we can't get a total of £7,000 we won't have the circus acts, and they were very much missed last year."
Of the sweet sale she added: "I thought it was a marvellous idea and I went along to support them."
