From dress up days to danceathons, schools and nurseries across Suffolk and north Essex have held events raising money for Children in Need.
Fairfield Infant and Colneis Junior school in Felixstowe had set a target of raising £100.
But they were blown away when their JustGiving page reached a total of £1,400.
Headteacher Mark Girling said: “We’re amazed at the generosity of our families.
“We appreciate our community coming together to support such a worthy charity at this particularly difficult time. It models a fantastic example to our children about how to be effective and positive citizens.”
