Snape Primary School have sung their thanks to a local charity hero after he donated masses of food to the village.
Pupils performed for Harry Young from Britten Pears Arts, which runs the shops at Snape Maltings after he arranged for unsold food to be donated to the village larder.
The larder has been supplying families since lockdown with Mr Young providing food for several months, having stocked up for a busy Easter period that never came.
Mr Young and his family also donated hundreds of Easter eggs to the village and nearby surrounding schools.
“We wanted to sing to say thank you,” said headteacher Sarah Gallagher.
