Pupils at an Ipswich school have helped to raise over £9000,
Students from the Royal Hospital School were able to present a cheque for £9,300 to the Suffolk Community Foundation.
The fundraising was co-ordinated by the school’s Charity Committee which is led by pupils.
A wide range of events were held to raise the money including a summer fete and a colour run.
Clive Rennison, assistant head at the school said: “We encourage our pupils to think about wider issues beyond their school and immediate community.
