Students at a Bury St Edmunds secondary school donned innovative costumes on the theme of Britishness to raise funds to help victims of the devastating earthquake in Nepal.

The Sixth Form at King Edward VI School, in Grove Road, showcased some eye-catching and fun threads as iconic figures, landmarks and some stereotypes including Daleks, tube stations, King Henry VIII, the England Football Team and Big Ben.

The initiative was the brainchild of Deputy Head Boy Sammy Hepper, who chairs the Charity Committee.

Headteacher Geoff Barton said: “Our Sixth Form need no excuse to dress up.

“They decided that making a donation to charity and dressing up with the theme of Britishness would be a good way to have fun, and to get much-needed funds to Nepal.”
