Students were given a rundown sleigh that needed redecorating and tidying up, ready for upcoming festivities. Between two groups they designed, rebuilt and sprayed the sleigh.

Student Beth Harrison said: “This is a great opportunity to be involved in a project that supports the local community.”

Andy Hunter, vice principal of Cromwell Community College, said: “What the students have achieved in just a few weeks is unbelievable. They should be enormously proud.”

Charlotte Siggins, 14-16 partnership liaison officer at CWA, said: “The level of work that has gone into this is amazing and the sleigh has been finished to such a high standard. They’ve done an amazing job.”

John Taylor, fundraising chairman of King’s Lynn Trinity Rotary Club, said: “I hope the students have enjoyed the project.
