They were visited by RNLI crew members and given a pair of yellow wellies in a UK-wide campaign.

The school that collects the most money will win a pair of RNLI wellies for their caretaker, to be presented on the lifeboat.

Stewart Oxley, from Walton & Frinton lifeboat, said: “We have sold out of our stock of 600 pin badges and have been blown away by the enthusiasm and support we have received.”
