Students from a March school raised nearly £150 as part of a fundraising day.
Pupils from the Neale-Wade Academy wrote letters, press releases, a newsletter and created posters to support the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service (EAAA) recently.
Not only that, but they took part in the 'Get up and go yellow' challenge, whereby students wore a yellow item of clothing throughout the day for a donation of £1.
Yellow cupcakes and biscuits also went on sale, with a 5-a-side tournament taking place as players wore yellow bibs to support the cause that raised a total of £148.50.
One pupil said: "When I walked round school and saw people in yellow, it was good to think we made it happen and we might be helping someone who needs the air ambulance."

Another added: "We raised £150 for the charity and we are very proud that could save somebody's life."
Neale-Wade decided to help the EAAA after they were called to help a friend who suffered an asthma attack, before ultimately saving a pupil's and a teacher's life.
