CHILDREN at Haydon Bridge's Shaftoe Trust First School didn't spill a drop as they completed a water carrying challenge.
Working in teams, they transported water across the school's walled garden, using pots, cartons, buckets, and even a funnel.
The challenge raised awareness of those who walk long distances to carry water for survival in poverty-stricken countries, using whatever means they have.

STAFF at five hospitals in the Tynedale area walked out during a strike over pay.
Hexham General, Hexham War Memorial, Haltwhistle War Memorial, Wooley Sanatorium and Prudhoe hospitals, were all affected after the National Union of Public Employees called out their members.
Ancillary staff, including porters, cooks, telephone operators and boilermen joined the 12-hour stoppage with some NUPE members taking part in a protest march in Newcastle.
