Students from seven primary schools dressed in their casual clothes to raise money for a mayor’s appeal.

More than £900 was raised by children from Worlingham primary school, Beccles academy, Ravensmere primary, St Benets, Albert Pye primary, St Michaels in Gillingham and Ditchingham primary.

The money raised will go towards the new play equipment at the quay.

Beccles mayor, Elfrede Brambley-Crawshaw, wrote in a post to Facebook: “Huge thanks to all these schools for joining in with the ‘Love my community Valentine’s non-uniform day’ to raise money for new play equipment at the quay.”

The appeal aims to replace the two climbing frames at the Beccles Quay.

At the time, she said: “The main equipment is at the end of its life, it’s over 35 years old and when it was built it was state-of-the-art.

“But it needs to be replaced with something equally beautiful. The quay is the most widely visited area in Beccles for residents and tourists so the equipment should reflect that.”
