Pupils and staff from Farlingaye School walked for eight miles around the town in a range of costumes including the cast from Mean Girls and Donald Trump.

Sponsor money collected by the students in the annual event will be split between local charities and improving school facilities.

Headteacher Andy Sievewright said: "Sponsored Walk day is a great Farlingaye tradition and a wonderful example of the school operating as a community.

"It is also a great opportunity for students to feel and understand the benefits of fresh air and exercise.
