Governors of Elveden Primary School held a Pampered Chef evening with demonstrations of vegetable lasagne and a pecan dessert.

Members of the audience were invited to help prepare the food and a sample of both was given to everybody to try.

There was also a grand raffle with winners able to chose from donated prizes or a voucher.

Chairman of governors, Sarah Rodwell, said £550 was raised and added: “We were overwhelmed by the generous support from local businesses which heard about Elveden and wanted to help.
