£2,500 Raised for Race for Life
On Friday 30th June we participated in our 2nd ever Race for Life event. Mrs Young was determined for it to be even bigger and better than the previous year and it certainly was.
With the children dressed head to toe in pink and blue, their face paint carefully in place and their dedicated messages on their back, they were ready to start. The music was pumping and the course was set. Mr Field kicked off the warm up dressed in his favourite pink tutu and pink wig – we even have photographic evidence to prove it!
The children chose to run, jog or walk and chose their own distance of 1 or 3 miles. The most important part was to join in and have fun, which we ALL did! Right from our tiny Reception children through to our competitive Year 6, the children ran their little socks off!
The most fun was had at the end of the day where the children got to throw wet sponges at their teachers for a small donation. Watch out Mrs Prentice, it's your turn in the stocks next year!
We would like to say a massive thank you to you all for helping to make our ‘Race for Life’ event such a huge success. We have been overwhelmed with the donations and have totally smashed last year's total. We are currently heading towards the £2,500 mark. How AMAZING is that!
We certainly made our ‘Race for Life’ event a day to remember.
