Pupils at Roydon Primary School have handed over £1,200 to charity following Christmas concerts held of the festive period.

At a presentation on Monday, a cheque was handed over to charity Wateraid, an international charity which strives to improve access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation.

The charity was chosen following an assembly from local vicar, Canon Billet, about the good cause.

Head teacher Sarah Bradford told the Diss Express: “The children and staff all worked incredibly hard to prepare for our fabulous performances and I am so proud of everyone who took part.

“We chose Wateraid because it is a charity close to Canon Billett’s heart and he came to talk to the children about what they provide for people who do not enjoy our luxury of clean, running water.

“It is wonderful for the children to understand how their efforts and hard work can have a direct and positive impact on the lives of others. This is yet another example of how our school’s values are reflected in all that we do at Roydon Primary School.’
