A day of fundraising - Charity Fun Run and 'Pink Morning'
There were great costumes on display at the St Mary's annual Charity Fun Run at Lammas Land! Everything from stars, planets and aliens to astronauts and characters from Star Wars for our theme - 'To Infinity and Beyond'! Parents cheered on students and staff and they ran around the park, raising money in the process.
Last year we raised over £7,000 for charity, and we hope to raise a similar amount from this year's event. This year we are raising money for the new Mary Ward school in Zimbabwe, Tom's Trust and SENSE.
The Fun Run afternoon was preceded by ‘Pink Morning’. Students came into school in pink home clothes and each brought in a £1 donation. All the money raised from this morning goes towards Breast Cancer Now and is part of the national ‘Wear It Pink’ campaign.
