Pupils from New Leake Primary School found out about the vital work carried out by the charity Hearing Dogs for the Deaf 10 years ago.

They had a visit from Nathan Browning with his dog, Bob, and June Spouncer from the charity as part of a week-long progamme about heroes.

Other activities at the school during the heroes week included a visit from the Rev Sullivan who spoke about Mother Teresa and a presentation from the Red Cross.

To top it all off, pupils dressed up as their favourite heroes for a day.
