Ormiston Endeavour Academy Ambassadors

Dan spent time with some Ormiston Endeavour Academy Ambassadors who are students who want to make a difference to their school and help their fellow pupils. He listened as they explained what they are trying to achieve and the roles they have taken on.

Their efforts could have the positive effect of preventing someone suffering from lung cancer later in life.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
