On Monday 6 July, a momentous event took place as St Lawrence’s ran the Race for Life to raise money for cancer research and raise awareness of the disease.
Each class, from Nursery to Year 6, ran one mile to mark the occasion. Many children had parents and grandparents running with them.
It was a wonderful community occasion and the children were regularly reminded of the importance of what they were doing. Mr Brown was very busy, running a mile with each of the classes (8 in total)!
Afterwards, the hardworking children and their families were rewarded with a well deserved cup of juice.
We haven’t finished counting our sponsorship money yet, but we have already collected in excess of £800, comfortably exceeding our £500 target. It was a fantastic effort by our children and their families.
