Update 08/05/2017: We raised £800! Thank you everyone!
We were very fortunate again to be blessed with blue skies and temperate weather as we performed a repeat of last year’s whole school fund raising run.
The pupils, staff and family and friends ran from the school up to a turning point 1k up Uphill beach and back again to raise money for the Sports Hall Fund.
There were some fantastic individual performances on the day but it wasn’t about individual performances. This event is about two things: raising money for a good cause (in this case a sports hall for our pupils), and celebrating health and fitness as a whole school.
The whole of the route was lined with people encouraging the runners as they went past and at the turning point there were drinks and jelly babies available for that last burst of energy. Thankfully the second half of the run was completed with a tailwind (which was very welcome) and all participants received certificates and a medal.
All we are waiting for now is for the sponsor money to come in…
