Pupils at a Portsmouth school will be able to chat with friends far away after they raised enough cash to buy a computer and webcam for youngsters in Zimbabwe.
Children from Stamshaw Junior School, in Tipner Road, Tipner, made friends with students in Nyameni Primary School, in the Zimbabwean town of Marondera.
And the school council decided to cement their friendship with the donation of the equipment, which means the pupils will be able to communicate with each other despite the 8,000 miles between them.
Headteacher Simon Cattermole said: ‘Earlier we had raised £7,500 and the children went to see The Lion King at the West End.
‘With left over money, students decided to buy the equipment.’
