Children and parents at Blisworth in Northamptonshire are raising money to pay for the village lollipop lady themselves.
This morning they held a sponsored relay-walk around the playground of Blisworth Community Primary School. The school needs to raise £2700 in order to fund the crossing-patrol on the busy A43 for a year.
In 2010 Northamptonshire County Council announced that it would have to stop funding the patrols as part of plans to save £73 million a year from council budgets.
