STAFF and students at an academy in Clacton have helped to raise more than £1,000 for a charity building schools in Africa.

Youngsters at Clacton Coastal Academy, in Pathfields Road, raised the cash for Love in Action, which is building schools and sponsoring children in Uganda.

Prefects at the school raised cash to extend a secondary school in Kasaka by holding coffee mornings, a musical showcase and pier-to-pier walk.

Academy principal Tracey Hemming said: “I find it astonishing they have managed to raise this amount of money and found time to arrange these events on top of all their studies.

“I am extremely proud to see that they understand how important this type of work is.”

Love in Action's Beryl Went, thanked the students for their efforts.
