Pupils at St Faith’s Primary School raise three times more than initial target for Sport Relief
Pupils at St Faith's Primary School have raised more than treble the initial target they were set to raise for Sport Relief this year.
All the money has been collected in and parents, pupils and teachers found out they had raised a grand total of �1530.43 - after initially aiming to raise �500.
The funds were raised through a sponsored event called 'Going For Goals' in which each child was part of a team aiming to score as many points as possible in five activities such as scoring goals in basketball and football or leaping over gym equipment.
Hannah and Declan Hall, pictured, were the fundraising champions, collecting over �240 between them and were awarded with a badminton set to thank them for their achievements.
The event was organised by class teacher Lorna Milbourne, who was delighted with the amount raised, saying: 'We watched the Sport Relief DVD in assembly after which many of the children filled in a brick for our Sport Relief wall saying why they wanted to raise money. One particularly poignant comment was 'I wouldn't like my brother to die because of bad water'.
