It was double celebrations at Bury St Edmunds’ All-Through Trust on Friday.

As well as hosting a family picnic to mark VE Day, celebrating 70 years since peace broke out in Europe, the trust was celebrating the culmination of a huge fund-raising drive across all six of its school campuses.

The entertainment ranged from bouncy castles, balloon modelling, games and face painting to youngsters performing the Lambeth Walk and country and maypole dances.

Meanwhile, Parent-Teacher Associations from Tollgate, Barrow, Howard, Horringer Court, Westley and County combined forces to sell tickets for a Spring Grand Draw to raise funds for a school minibus to be shared between all six sites.

More than 60 prizes were donated, with the Mayor of St Edmundsbury, Cllr Robert Everitt, drawing the winning tickets.

The top prize of an HP Chromebook Laptop was won by a lucky Year 10 student.
