Students took part in a fifty-a-side football match and group shoulder massage as part of a sponsored walk that will improve the surroundings at Old Buckenham High School.

Pupils from years 7, 8 and 9 walked five-and-a-half miles to New Buckenham and back on Friday and raised more than �2,800 that will go towards redeveloping one of the school's gardens.

They also got involved in a huge football match and group shoulder massage at the village hall before returning to school.

Staff and students at Old Buckenham are aiming to turn one of the gardens into a tranquil outdoor area, including sensory area with plants, sculptures, seating, paving and shelter for use at break and lunchtimes.

The school also intends to create five beds for an inter-house vegetable gardening competition.

Contact Andrea Hassan at the school if you can help with donations or advice for the garden on 01953 860233, or email ahassan1@red.esinet.org.uk
