Every weekend, one pupil of St Thomas More’s primary school in Havant takes home Chester the monkey, the school mascot, with them.
So when Evie Stouse took the cuddly toy home on the weekend of her birthday party, he was in for a treat.
As well as Chester, Evie, from Havant, was joined by 45 of her friends to mark her fifth birthday with a party at St Albans Hall, Leigh Park.
The group were entertained with juggling, a magic show and party games from Charlie the Magician.
Evie’s mum Louise, her dad James and her sister Elsie, two, were also there to celebrate.
The birthday girl is a big fan of the Frozen film franchise, particularly the animated short Frozen Fever, and dressed as Elsa for her party.
So she was delighted when she saw her birthday cake, which was handmade with a Frozen Fever theme. Louise says her highlight of the party was when everyone sang Happy Birthday to her while receiving the cake.
