A group of school children from Pratts Bottom Primary in Orpington will pull an eight-tonne fire engine full of water across their playground tomorrow.

The event is to raise money for horticultural charity Perennial, as a part of its “Go Green” fundraising fortnight.

The pupils have been backed by local garden centre Coolings of Knockholt, who have sponsored them for each meter they manage to pull the eight-tonne engine.

Coolings will also be hosting “An Evening with Alan Titchmarsh” next Monday with advanced tickets also raising money for Perennial.
