PUPILS got messy for char­ity when they took part in a muddy chal­lenge.

Pupils at Gate­way School in Great Mis­senden have raised £1,000 from their lat­est fundrais­ing en­deav­our for Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties.

The in­de­pen­dent day school’s youngest pupils, from ages two to six, took part in a spon­sored, muddy ob­sta­cle course within the school grounds to raise funds for the char­ity which pro­vides free ‘home away from home’ ac­com­mo­da­tion to fam­i­lies while their child is in hos­pi­tal.

Lib­erty Wil­liams, a pupil in Gate­way School’s Nurs­ery, re­cently spent time in hos­pi­tal and her fam­ily, in­clud­ing brother Toby who also at­tends Gate­way School, were keen to fundraise for Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties as a thank you for the sup­port that they re­ceived.

Watched and sup­ported by par­ents and teach­ers, the chil­dren took part in a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties and skills on the day.

Head­teacher at Gate­way School Sue La Farge said: “We’re very pleased to have sup­ported Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties. The chil­dren had a won­der­ful time com­plet­ing the spon­sored ob­sta­cle course and have all en­joyed mak­ing their do­na­tions, in the knowl­edge that they are help­ing oth­ers.

“Fundrais­ing and learn­ing about char­i­ties is an im­por­tant part of life here at Gate­way School and our pupils re­ally ben­e­fit from un­der­stand­ing the needs of peo­ple who are sup­ported by char­i­ties such as Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties. Many thanks to all of the par­ents and fam­i­lies who have do­nated so gen­er­ously to this wor­thy cause.”
