A double decker bus has been shipped to the Ivory Coast to be used as a school library - months after a roadside blaze threatened the project.
The £6,000 bus bought by regulars at the Crown Inn, in Smallburgh, Norfolk, caught fire while being driven on the A11 near Cambridge in July.
An anonymous businessman then stepped forward to donate another bus.
Landlady Eunice Jokrassett said 16 pub regulars collected materials to donate to the African schools.
Eileen Cole, a retired Sheringham High School teacher, said her former employer donated 20 microscopes.
Other books, stationery and science materials donated by other schools, she said.
The bus will be used to travel to different schools in the Ivory Coast.
Colin Shreeve, also a retired teacher, said: "There was a lot of poverty in the country and we often saw women carrying large containers of water on their heads and even a gas cylinder in one case.
"In one village a single water stand pipe served the community from a wide area around."
