Gorseland Primary School create a rainbow for Children in Need


All the colours of the rainbow were on show at one Suffolk school today in aid of Children in Need.

Gorseland Primary School in Martlesham’s non-uniform day saw each year group given a different colour to dress in so they could create a vibrant aerial rainbow.

Elizabeth Leonard from the school said: “It was a whole school event. It was really exciting.

“We had a drone here which filmed it and we took some photographs of it.

“We had a special assembly as well and sang some reworded songs.

“The children have had a really fun morning.”

The school raised £850 for the charity fundraising marathon and is also donating money to Acorn House, which supports families of sick children being treated at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

A cake sale also boosted the total. The aerial footage and photos came from a drone supplied by Van Cols photographers.
