Year 7 pupils and their tutors at Hardenhuish School raised over £300 on Saturday when they joined the Chippenham Park Run to raise money for their chosen charity, Cancer Research UK.
Although many of the pupils had not run more than 2km before, all of them completed the 5km course despite the mud and the wet weather.
After the race, Mr Mike Heffernan, the school’s Year 7 learning Manager, said, “The Year 7s enjoyed excellent support from their families and friends, as well as from the Park Run volunteers and members of the public. We would like to thank everyone who donated money to this great cause”.
