YOUNGSTERS put on a larger-than-life production of Peter Pan to raise money for a children’s charity.

The 10 and 11-year-olds at St Swithun’s Primary in Southsea wowed audiences this week with their version of JM Barrie’s classic which had lots of extra characters thrown in, and raised £100 for Great Ormond Street.

Ron Parker, year six teacher, who wrote and directed the play, said: ‘I had to adapt Peter Pan to accommodate upwards of 45 actors and 45 dancers!

‘It was great fun, duplicating pirates – some of them based on people we know.’
