Chil­dren let their feet do the talk­ing at fundrais­ing event

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

STU­DENTS put their best feet for­ward in a bid to buy a new minibus for their school.

Poyn­ton High School pupils took part in spon­sored walk, trav­el­ling from the school on Yew Tree Lane to Lume Park in Dis­ley and back again.

The dis­tance cov­ered by the group of 1,000 stu­dents in the Whole School Spon­sored Walk event was eight miles.

Among those step­ping out for the school were Year eight stu­dents Max Sellers, Evie Clare, Amelia Bartlett, Maisie Leonard and Ella Sut­ton.

Through col­lec­tions and spon­sor­ship the school looks to have raised more than £3,000.

But that sum is ex­pected to rise as spon­sor­ship and do­na­tions are still be­ing col­lected by stu­dents.

David Waugh, head­teacher at Poyn­ton High School, said the event was an ex­am­ple of the wider en­gage­ment and cel­e­bra­tory tra­di­tions of the school.

He said: “A huge thank you to ev­ery­one in­volved in or­gan­is­ing this.

“It was a Her­culean ef­fort to mar­shal over 1,000 teenagers around our lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“On a glo­ri­ous, sunny day, stu­dents walked an im­pres­sive eight miles from their school on Yew Tree Lane to Lyme Park and back again, hope­fully rais­ing money to help pur­chase a new school minibus.”
