The Friends of Stowmarket Middle School have gifted the pupils more than £2,000 before the school closes at the end of the year.

On Friday, representatives from the organisation presented a cheque for £2,150.81 to pupils during a special celebration assembly.

Edwin Lambert, treasurer of the Friends, said they wanted to give the children the chance to make the most of the money.

He said: “Over the time I have been involved, about 13 years, we have raised around £40,000.

“We have done this through various events through the years. We have run school discos, summer fairs, quiz nights, chocolate bingo – you name it we’ve tried it.”

Today the school is holding a non-uniform day with the theme of ‘hats’ to raise even more money.

Teacher Rob Wheeler said: “The school council have decided to put the money towards a day out for the whole school – but they haven’t decided where yet.”
