Fund-raisers across West Suffolk dug deep and did their bit to help this year’s Children in Need raise a massive £32.6 million.

Four directors from Abbeycroft Leisure and Anglia Community Leisure, which run centres in Bury, Brandon and Mildendall, raked in £1,227 through an ‘Apprentice’ style contest. They used their business skills to fund-raise while working in busy areas of the leisure centres they manage.

Seventeen riders from Newmarket Cycling and Triathlon Club donned fancy dress and embarked on a 35 mile round trip from Newmarket to the Maglia Rosso cycling cafe, in Hawstead. They have so far raised about £130. Maglia Rosso donated £20 of takings and offered a £25 prize for the best dressed.

Dancers on West Suffolk College’s performing arts course made more than £50 through a bake sale and encouraged students to wear onesies and pyjamas for the day. Little Bears Preschool, in Tollgate Lane, Bury raised £70 from a superhero Pudsey party and cake sale.

Guildhall Feoffment Primary, in Bury raised £403 after pupils dressed in spots and a variety of colours. Mildenhall College Academy raised £811 through a non uniform superhero themed day.
