Running to Save Lives



ON the 20th of March 2018, Emmbrook Junior School did the one hour of movement. We spent an hour running, jogging, dancing and best of all playing fun games.

Mr Fisher (the organiser) said that all the children were very enthusiast­ic and it was great to see all the pupils with a smile on their faces. His aim is to raise £1,500 but anything is better than nothing when it comes to those in need and every penny counts.

Kye, in year four, said that he really enjoyed raising money because he knew it was going to a good cause.

Mr Theobald, assistant head, said the best thing about the day was seeing the effort the children had made throughout the hour.

We all did our best to raise as much money as possible because we knew that we were going to save lives and help people who needed it most, as they were suffering from terrible diseases such as malaria. The money went to buying life-changing mosquito nets.

to move. First year 3 then year 4 all the way till year 6 at the end of the day.

“All the pupils were pleased that it was a nice, dry day.

Mr Fisher, the organiser, said: “It was very good, all the children were very enthusiast­ic and it was great to see all the pupils and the smiles on their faces.” Everyone enjoyed it especially Evie, year 3, who said it was” very good,” and Ethan, year 6, who said it was” Really fun and enjoyable”.

The school’s goal is to raise £1,500 from sponsors which will go to sport relief nationally. They have done a brilliant job of raising money as have many schools.
