STUDENTS at Spaxton Church of England Primary School have raised more than £1,800 for Children in Need.

The school hosted a charity extravaganza on November 13 and took part in a range of fundraising activities to raise £1,814.65 - an average of £24.52 per student.

All of the students took part in a sponsored walk around the school field and had 30 minutes to do as many laps as possible.

They could choose to walk, run or skip their way round and all of the students were encouraged to wear something spotty for Pudsey along with their school uniform.

Rachel Rood, headteacher of the school, said: "I am so proud of the whole school community for supporting our ramble so generously.

"For a small school to raise such a large amount is just phenomenal.

"The children showed such perseverance and resilience on the day and it was great to see them being so supportive of one another."

Year 6 pupil Molly Gray added: “We had to be determined because it was really muddy, but we kept going until our time was up, despite being tired, because we knew it was to help other children.”
