A giant dinosaur stalked the streets of Woodbridge with all manner of curious costumed characters for a high school’s sponsored fancy dress walk.

Students and the staff from Farlingaye High School walked around town and along the river, stopping for lunch on Kingston Field.

The biennial fundraising event is run with precision planning, with each year group setting off at certain times, and members of staff situated at strategic points along the route, as well as accompanying the students.

Sponsorship money will be split between charity and the improvement of outdoor facilities at the school.

There were spot prizes for the best outfits, and a special day out for the tutor group that raised the most money.

Headteacher Andy Sievewright called the walk a “key part of Farlingaye’s tradition and a wonderful opportunity for students to work together to help others, develop the school, and enjoy exercise in the open air.”
