Nursery children from Abbots Green Primary Academy in Bury St Edmunds do sponsored walk for Barnardo's




Children from a Bury St Edmunds primary school took a trip on the wild side, raising over £1,000 for charity in the process.

Around 40 nursery children from Abbots Green Primary Academy took part in the Safari-themed Big Toddle Week last week, a short sponsored walk for under 5s.

It was all in aid of Barnardo's, a charity formed to care for vulnerable children.

Ang Morrison, headteacher, said she was delighted with how the fund-raiser went.

“Across our school, we always place a strong emphasis on charity and helping others, both nationally and within our own community," she said.

“All the children took part in the lap of our school field and they raised an amazing £1,012 – and still counting.
