Schools showed their support for two charities last week with a number of fundraising coffee mornings and events.

Pot Kiln Primary School in Great Cornard held a “Dahlicious dress-up day” for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity on Friday, raising £177.85.

The event saw staff and pupils wearing costumes of their favourite characters from Roald Dahl books.

The school also held a coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of the charity’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, with £205.12 raised.

Ormiston Sudbury Academy’s Bronte House pupils organised their own cake sale for the cancer charity on Friday. They raised £309.27 .

Tudor Primary School in Sudbury hosted the seventh annual Macmillan Cancer Support coffee morning organised by leukaemia sufferer Sylvia Tatum on Saturday.

Mrs Tatum, who began to support the charity after it helped her husband Eric before his death in 2006, was unable to attend after a fall at her home. However, volunteers raised around £400.
