Year 7 Race for Life aims to raise £5,000

Thank you to all the parents, staff and Year 7 students who supported the Race for Life charity event in aid of Cancer Research UK just before half term.

It was a fantastic afternoon and lovely to see the students trying so hard during the race, being cheered on by approximately 100 family and friends. The students (plus a few staff and parents) collectively ran just under 1,400 laps of the school field, which equates to a staggering 1000km…. equivalent to London to Marseille.

At the time of writing the event has raised £2,690 in sponsorship. The 20p tube collections have currently contributed another £500 and the charity stalls £316. We will gratefully receive any outstanding sponsorship money over the next few weeks and hopefully reach our £5,000 target!
