Southery Academy's school council organised a pyjama day and cake sale to raise money for a charity chosen by the Year 6 pupils, East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

The children raised £124.55 from their fundraising efforts and members of school council took the money to the offices of EACH, in Wymondham, to find out a bit more about the charity.

On visiting the charity offices, the children were told how the money would help with the running of EACH hospices and how they have helped raise awareness of the charity's nook appeal which is raising money to build a new hospice.

Principal Julian Goodrum said: 'It makes me very proud of our children to know that they chose this worthwhile cause on their own and then organised the fundraising as well.'

Emma Taylor, community fundraiser for EACH, said: 'We are very grateful for all the support we have received from Southery Academy.'
