Annual charity fundathon which nationally looks set to beat all previous records and hit a new total in the east of England too.

TWO friends raised over £1,200 for Children in Need last weekend with a raffle and a fancy dress sponsored walk.

Stacey Bryenton, 18, from St Edmund's Road in Southwold, and Gemma Marshall, 25, from Bungay Road in Holton, took eight of their friends on a sponsored walk from Wangford to Southwold last Saturday- followed by a dip in the sea.

Meanwhile the night before they held a raffle at the King's Head in Southwold. They would like to thank to all their supporters.

A Floydathon in Beccles raised over £680 in eight hours for the charity on Saturday. Local band Floydian Slip performed Pink Floyd covers all day outside Tesco.

The pair will be performing again tomorrow in Ditchingham Village Hall, raising funds for Ditchingham Primary School. Entry is £5 and the school PTA will be providing food, however you are advised to bring your own drinks.

Children at Barnby and North Cove Community Primary School had a non-uniform day with a red and yellow theme, to raise money for Children in Need. In addition, they made biscuits, which were sold at playtime. Other activities included making bandanas and a colouring competition.

A Children in Need coffee morning at Holy Trinity Church, Bungay, on Friday raised £171.55. It was organised by Ann Byrne, supported by members of the church.
