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.”
