SHIVER me timbers! Youngsters at a city school are after more treasure.

The children at Seaburn Dene Primary School would have terrified Blackbeard himself when they held a Pirate Day to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Pupils at the Torver Crescent school decided they wanted to support the cause after members from the lifeboat charity visited them to talk about the work they do.

Lynn Bannister, a member of staff at the school, said: “The children all came to school dressed as pirates and made a donation to the charity.

“They thought supporting the charity was a really good idea.”

To make the event even more fun for the youngsters, a lot of activities throughout the day were based on a pirate-theme.
