Claypole Church of England Primary School raised almost £2,500 for Children in Need.
School pupils have raised thousands of pounds for Children in Need with a fun run.
150 children from the Claypole Church of England Primary School ran a mile around the school’s tennis court as part of a RunPudsey fundraiser.
Together the school managed to raise a staggering £2,472.80 for Children in Need and stayed healthy and active at the same time.
The school even cut together a parody video inspired by the ‘Choose Life’ running sequence in the film Trainspotting, with lines such as “choose helping others where you can”.
School head, Martyn Wells, said: “We've raised nearly £2,500, which for a small school of 150 children is a phenomenal amount and reflects the kindness, generosity and philosophy of service that is so strong and important to our school community.
“We're an active school and we love sports so when our PTA shared the RunPudsey information with us, we knew the children would be eager to take part in the challenge.
“They've all come to school this morning wearing their 'spotacular' outfits and trainers.”
All school pupils and adults took, wither walking, running or jogging, with the aim to have all of the children complete a mile.
After measuring the distance of the tennis courts, the children had to run 10 laps in order to reach a mile.
The school also organised an obstacle course around the school playground at lunchtime for all children to join in with if they wished.
Mr Wells added: “It's really warming to see that our love of being active is also helping to support so many important organisations — especially during these difficult times and cost of living crisis.
“It's a real testament to our school community.”
