Archbishop Cranmer Church of England Primary Academy raised money for Nottingham Children’s Hospital Trust




Primary school pupils raised more than £2,000 for charity after completing a challenging fun run.

Children from Archbishop Cranmer Church of England Primary Academy, Aslockton, raised the money for Nottingham Children’s Hospital Trust by completing laps of their school field.

The school presented the money to a charity representative as part of their big appeal to fundraise to help convert empty space into a family accommodation at Queen’s Medical Centre children’s ward.

Head Mrs Melanie Stevens said the children were heavily engaged in the charity fun run.

“Every child ran, from ages four to 11. All 158 pupils took part. It was a great effort,” said Mrs Stevens.

“The parents were really supportive and for a school of our size to raise that much money is amazing.”

The most energetic key stage two pupils completed 15 laps, while some from key stage one completed ten.
