More than 300 chil­dren took part in a Race For Life event at East Stour Pri­mary School last Wed­nes­day.

Mar­garet Stew­ard, head teacher, said pupils, fam­i­lies and staff be­came ‘run­ning he­roes’ as they raised cash for Cancer Re­search UK, com­plet­ing a five-kilo­me­ter course.

She said: “They ran, walked and some pushed bug­gies around the field 20 times.

“Many of our fam­i­lies ran for loved ones and I couldn’t have been prouder of ev­ery­one who took part.

“This is the sec­ond year we have run this event and we look for­ward to hear­ing how much has been raised.”

She added: “A spe­cial thanks to Julie Steele, with­out her de­sire to help this event wouldn’t have got off of the ground.”
