Youngsters from two schools have raised money for the children’s ward at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.
The student council at the Anthony Curton Church of England Primary School in Wisbech, and Tilney All Saints Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School voted for their year of fund raising to be donated to the Rudham Ward.
The sister schools raised £1,500 between them over the last twelve months.
Charlotte Large, nine, and Nicholas Hedges, 10, from Anthony Curton’s School Council, and Thomas-Arthur Jagger, six, and Savanah Woodeson, seven, from Tilney All Saints School council, visited Rudham ward to present their cheque.
Staff showed the students, headteacher Anne Senior and school council facilitator Samantha Joyce around the children’s ward play area and heard how they raised the money from cake sales, school church services and non-uniform days such as fancy dress events and a Christmas jumper day.

Partnership headteacher Anne Senior said: “It’s really nice to be able to bring the children from the school councils to see where their fundraising efforts are going.
“The partnership with the two schools is really strong and the school councils really work together and listen to each other when making these decisions.”
