Staff and students at Felsted School became caked in colour as part of a charity fundraising event.

The Neon Colour Festival, which included a 3.5km colour fun run, generated money for the school’s two charity partners Sparkle Malawi and Volunteer Uganda.

As a finale all of the runners arranged themselves on the field to form a human map of Africa as part of a world-record attempt.

It is not yet known if a new record was set.

The event raised close to the £10,000 target, with more money expected in the coming weeks.

The money will be used to fund twenty A-level students in Uganda and secure the future of an orphanage in Malawi.

Organiser Reverend Nigel Little said: “It’s an amazing achievement to have raised so much money.”
