More than 170 children at Woolpit Community Primary School raised around £447 for the Stroke Association by sharing collection boxes they had made with family and friends.

Headteacher Shaun Holland said: “We gave the children an afternoon to create and decorate their own collection box.

“It was a fantastic opportunity for the whole school to come together for such a great cause.

“The children really loved getting behind such a creative project to raise money for the Stroke Association. We most definitely had some show-stoppers!”

Mother-of-two Louise Everett said her children ‘loved the idea’ of creating their own collection boxes and ‘within no time they had feathers, glitter and pipe cleaners at the ready’.

‘Incredibly grateful’ to the pupils, Sara Betsworth, regional head of operations at the Stroke Association, said: “The money will go a long way in helping people who are living with the effects of stroke.”

The boxes will be on view to the general public at Stowmarket Library until January 8.
