Wymondham couple Jennifer and Jim Cawte regularly travel around the UK in their 1983 Morris Ital 'Postman Pat' Royal Mail van.

And they have donated money raised from their latest venture to help fund play equipment at Chapel Green School for pupils with special needs, which is currently under construction. They raised £1,040 for the school thanks to donations from friends, family, Lowestoft Lions Club and City of Norwich Lions.

Karin Heap, the school's headteacher, said: 'I would like to say a huge thank you to Jen and Jim. This will help towards the extra special equipment that is needed in the new playground at Chapel Green School. Their understanding of our school and our continuing relationship together means a lot to both staff and pupils.'
