Sixth formers at Attleborough Academy Norfolk have raised more than £800 for Children in Need.

The sixth form president team organised the day, on Friday 14.

Students enjoyed a fairground themed lunch, with competitions to guess the weight of a cake and how many sweets were in a jar.

There was also hot popcorn cooked by assistant principal Mr Barns and a chance to throw hula hoops at head of science Mr Brahams.

In total, £837 was raised.

Ramin Keshavarz, head of sixth form, said: “It is particularly gratifying that the inventive efforts of the Sixth Form Presidents to raise money for Children in Need were rewarded with such a fantastically generous contribution from the students of the Academy. Everyone involved should be very proud of themselves.”
