Kevin Bullock, who is now retired, has penned The Animals of Blipp - a book about a group of animals who leave Earth for another planet.

All profits from sales of the 63-year-old’s book will go to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Mr Bullock, of Fornham St Martin, near Bury St Edmunds, visited St Christopher’s Primary School in Red Lodge this week to read the story – which he first thought of 20 years ago – to excited pupils.

He said: “I have been telling this story for around 20 years to pupils. I found a publisher and my niece did the art work.

“The children seem to love the interactive element of the story and at the end they are all throwing their hands up in the air.”

Mr Bullock, who is a lifelong Ipswich Town fan, added that £1,000 has already been raised for EACH through sales.
