A photographer has donated £550 to a Fenland school.

Chris Brudenell, of Whittlesey, took pictures of Park Lane Primary School’s drama productions and sold them to parents.

But, instead of keeping the profits, he donated them back to the school.

Head teacher Margaret Leverett said: “We really value what Chris does for the school. He enables parents to have really good quality photographs of their children.

“The money will help us put on future productions, which are so important for the children.”
