Staff and students baked cakes for the sale and later organised a cinema screening in the school hall for years seven, eight and nine.

After school, 200 pupils took part in a sponsored colour run around the playing field watched by parents.

Southery Academy pupils wore spotty clothes instead of their usual uniform, had awareness-raising lessons and played spot the difference during their fundraising day.

Students at the College of West Anglia in Lynn have also been creative, coming up with a variety of fundraising activities.
