Children and parents baked cakes and other items containing sunflower seeds to raise money and awareness for the appeal.
Christian Aid are providing sunflower seeds to farmers in Burundi as it is a high yield crop that will grow in a particularly tough climate.
The children at Mill View worked with a volunteer with Christian Aid to learn all about their work and how this crop is saving lives.
Katie Hetherington, a teacher at the school, said: “It was a privilege to see our school community come together for a fantastic cause. I didn’t know there was so much you could do with a simple sunflower seed!”
