MORE than 400 pupils took part in a sponsored walk to raise money for poorer children overseas.
St Joseph's College in Ipswich raised £4,000 last year for charity by staging the event and hope to match that this year as all the funds will go to a school in Peru and other overseas development projects.
The three-mile walk started at the school in Belstead Road and continued through Belstead village before looping back round.
Bev Hudson from the school said: “Everyone had a really nice time. We are delighted to be able to help others by doing this.
