Ludham Primary School and Nursery raised £167 for Brake from the day, which saw parents, carers and pupils make Bake for Brake cakes.

Zac the Zebra, Brake’s mascot, made an appearance at the sports day and even joined in some of the events, like the adults’ space hopper race.

Headteacher Heather Delf said: “The charity Brake does important work in helping to save lives by raising road safety awareness.

“I am so grateful to all the families, governors and staff at Ludham Primary School and Nursery, for their hard work, and support in making, selling and buying cakes - a real team effort.”

She thanked Kristen Hurn and Theresa Perkins who organised the sports afternoon, and parent Helen Bartlett for supporting the event.
