A popular group has helped to raise funds for a Lowestoft school.
Last year the Anglia Pensioners Association held two charity functions to raise money for the Warren School.
A coffee and cake morning, which included a stall to sell books and jigsaws, raised just over £300. A well attended charity dance evening, complete with a huge raffle that featured prizes all donated by the Association members, raised a further £1,200 for the school as the evening was hailed a success as Lowrider entertained on the night. Many thanks to the Uplands Community Centre for hosting the events.

Arnie Poll, club secretary, and committee members Christine Snell and Norman Laughland are also pictured. A sponsorship deal with Barclays Bank led to another £1,000 being raised, to bring the grand total to £2,500. These funds were used to buy a large multi screen teaching aid, which can be height adjusted to suit all the school pupils as they range in age from five to 19.
