PARENTS at Sextons Manor Primary School raised £250 for St Nicholas Hospice Care after giving generously at the end of the school’s festive productions.

They were asked for donations after the curtain fell on the children’s shows, which included a Nativity, the Christmas Recipe and Pirates of the Currybean.

The school’s older pupils decided that the hospice should be the lucky recipient of the funds.

Headteacher Debbie Knight said: “Given the economic climate it was very kind of the parents.

“They were very positive about the plays. We’re very strong as a school in terms of our performances and music. The dance routines were amazing.”

Pirates of the Currybean was staged by Years 3 and 4 and included a slow motion fight to music from the movie Chariots of Fire.

Pupils from Riverwalk School joined the nursery and reception as well as Years 1 and 2 for their respective productions of the Nativity and Christmas Recipe.

Last year, the school collected money for the Rainbow Ward at West Suffolk Hospital.
