The usual school uniform had been cast aside as teachers and students alike joined together for the Sir John Leman High School’s fundraiser for Cancer Research UK.

Last year the school helped to raise £9,000 in Leman 4 Life, their take on the popular Race for Life, as 400 people ran around the school field, and this year 460 took on the 5km challenge.

Organiser Helen Horn, food technology teacher at the school, said: “It went exceptionally well. They have all done a really good job and cheered each other on really well.”

Mrs Horn said the event started last year after she had told her Year 11 class about taking part in the Race for Life and they said they wanted to do something similar.

The students lined up for a warm- up before the run at 2pm. Those wanting to set a fast time led the field off with Dominic Oliver winning for the second year in a row, while those in fancy dress took the course at a more sedate pace.

The Bungay Black Dog Running Club and Beccles Friends of Cancer Research provided support.
