A thousand students and their teachers took part in the fourth annual Leman for Life fund-raising event dressed in their best fancy dress costumes.
Students and staff from Sir John Leman High School in Beccles ran, walked or strolled around the 5km course on the school field on Tuesday afternoon.
The fund-raiser is the school’s own version of Cancer Research UK’s famous Race for Life, and over the past three years has raised £24,000 for the charity.
Sponsorship money is still being counted but the school hopes to raise more than £6,500 to help them break the £30,000 barrier.
The run is organised with the help of Beccles Friends of Cancer Research UK and Bungay Black Dog Running Club, and is supported with donations of resources by local businesses including Travis Perkins, Cosseys, Morrisons, Promens and Essex and Suffolk Water.
