Fitness fundraiser at Long Melford Primary School gives boost to Children in Need
Youngsters at Long Melford Primary School donned colourful pyjamas in aid of Children in Need on Friday.
The charity initiative, which is hosted by the BBC, takes place each year in November, to raise vital funds to support disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
To kick off the fundraiser on Friday, pupils took part in a live streamed fitness session of the BBC’s Big Morning Move led by celebrity body coach Joe Wicks.
“It was an excellent way to start the day – they loved the exercises,” said headteacher Amanda Woolmer.
In the afternoon, Year 6 pupils took part in a polka dot face painting session.
The fundraising event culminated in a whole-school dance.
Learning support assistant Jo Sandford was a good sport and allowed pupils to gunk her as part of a further fundraising event on Monday.
Altogether, the school raised around £250 for the cause.
