Youngsters do their bit for school Sport Relief
WONDER Woman and Little Red Riding Hood were among the runners at a Huddersfield school’s Sport Relief event.
Closer inspection revealed that the famous characters were really pupils in disguise as they ran, jogged or walked a mile-long course in the grounds of Huddersfield Grammar School in Luck Lane, Marsh.
More than 100 children, aged from three to seven, were involved in the Sport Relief mile organised by head of Early Years, Miss Nicola Halstead.
The youngsters could choose to wear fancy dress, Sport Relief tops or football shirts for the sponsored activity.
And some of the parents couldn’t resist joining in too!
Overall, the Grammar School raised more than £1,400 for charity.
The total included money from a fun sports activity afternoon for youngsters aged seven to 11.
They each paid £1 to wear football shirts and Sport Relief tops, and highlights of their fundraising were a dodgeball tournament and space hopper relay.
Year 7 pupils, aged 11 to 12, also found the recipe for success by baking Sport Relief buns.
Mr Michael Seaton, the school’s new headmaster, said: “We were blessed with super weather for a fantastic day of fundraising.
“Our students really entered into the spirit of the occasion.”
Money from the national fundraiser is intended to help vulnerable people - across the UK and the world - to live happier, healthier and safer lives.
