Pupils raise £3,500 for Cancer Research UK
Generous pupils from a school near Ripon raise £3,500 for Cancer Research after completing laps of the school’s grounds.
Earlier this term pupils from Cundall Manor School, between Ripon and Thirsk, gathered to take part in a charitable dash for cash in aid of Cancer Research.
Pupils as young as FOUR and as old as 13 put on their fancy dress and prepared to take on Cancer by walking, jogging or running around the school grounds in aid of Cancer Research UK’s lifesaving scheme.
While completing laps of the field pupils had to overcome numerous obstacles set out by the school’s ever adventurous Games department.
Louise Bessey, Assistant Head and the organiser the of the event said that “I am so proud of all the children for raising such a large sum of money for such a fantastic cause. Nearly all of us know someone who has been affected by cancer and we all have our reasons as to why we want to help this charity.”
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is fantastic initiative which is inspires many children and adults to raise millions of pounds to aid vital research.
Cundall Manor’s Headmistress, Amanda Kirby added: “We are all aware of the fantastic work that charities like Cancer Research do. As a school we pride ourselves on being able to organise many charitable initiatives across the school year and even in these challenging times we are always looking at different ways to support these charities.”
