Life education has been given a boost thanks to hundreds of pounds of fund raising from a charity group.
The mobile classroom, which visits schools across Cambridgeshire, has been funded to the tune of £2,000 thanks to a donation from the Whittlesey Rotary Club.
The money will pay for children who attend Park Lane, Alderman Jacobs and New Road schools to visit the bus as it tours the county.
Money was raised thanks to a grand quiz attended by nearly 200 people.
Rotary Club member Steven Hudson, who oversees the Life Education Centre fund raising, said: “The mobile is full of electronic wizadry especially geared to teaching about health, anti drugs and anti smoking messages.
“We are delighted to be able to support such a fantastic cause.”
The rotary club has been supporting the mobile classroom for the last 17 years.
