The event in Shipdham, held at Thomas Bullock Primary Academy, saw dozens of people enjoy the weekend weather and take part in the games and activities.

Held on Saturday July 7, organisers The Friends of Shipdham Schools (FOSS) confirmed that a total of £1,361 was raised.

Chairman of FOSS, Kaz Mason, said she hoped some of the donations would go towards outdoor projects for the school.

A spokesperson added: “People who came enjoyed an afternoon of glorious Norfolk sunshine.

“There were stalls galore with games for the children, a raffle and bouncy castle, as well as a barbecue and bar.”

Singer Chloe Rickwood and members of Busy Bodies Dance School also performed, as well as the school choir and bands.

There was also archery, facepainting, a crew from Norfolk Fire and Rescue who arrived with a fire engine, as well as craft stalls.
