A VILLAGE school has smashed its fund-raising records after collecting more than £1,400 for a hospital children’s ward.

Pupils at Rougham Primary amassed the cash for West Suffolk Hospital’s Rainbow Ward from various innovative activities throughout the year.

Highlights included an event in which children completed targets relating to the number seven, a non-uniform rainbow day and a heptathlon.

A different beneficiary for the funds is chosen every year by the school council.

Deputy head Diane Grimes said: “A few children have spent time on and know the ward so it’s a charity close to home. This is more than we’ve raised in previous years. It’s more than double the amount we reached last year for Asthma UK.”
