A BUMPER harvest fair at Wisbech Grammar School netted a record-breaking �1,420 for a string of good causes.

Students from the senior school and Magdalene House junior school raised the money at a lunch-time sale.

Money raised will be split between five charities, including Sightsavers, which provides treatment for eye diseases in developing countries, the Alzheimer's Society, SOS Children's Villages, which cares for orphans in Africa, The Brooke, which caters for working animals and the Breast cancer Campaign.

Earlier in the morning students brought in seasonal produce which they packed and delivered to St Augustine's Day Centre for the Elderly, the Oasis Centre for the Elderly, the Victoria Lodge Day Centre, the Rosmini Centre, the Salvation Army and the Wisbech Foyer.
