School steps out for defibrillator appeal
Pupils at Woodhall Primary School in Sudbury helped buy a life-saving piece of equipment for the community through a sponsored run and walk that raised more than £8,000.
The youngsters took part in the event to raise funds for a defibrillator which will be installed at the school.
Headteacher Matthew Fuller said: "We hoped a fundraising walk would help boost our funds towards a defibrillator.
"But to raise such an incredible sum from one event is a testimony to everyone's hard work and the commitment of all our pupils.
"I would like to thank everyone who supported the walk including our fantastic Friends of Woodhall Primary School."
The school's fundraising campaign is part of a bigger drive by the Unity Schools Partnership, of which Woodhall is a member, to have all schools in the trust fitted with a defibrillator.
