Kind-hearted schoolchildren have raised £100,000 for 100 different charities.
Students from Hartismere School, near Eye, have carried out the fundraising as part of a project designed to make them consider the community around them.
Dan Poulter MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, visited the school to recognise the efforts of pupils and present a certificate.
Headteacher Jim McAtear said: 'The project has been running for the last few years.
'When we raise the £100,000 we then start again.
