This Sunday 23rd April, Miss Melville will be running the London Marathon for the first time. She is using this unique opportunity to raise awareness and funds for Meningitis Research Foundation. As a non-runner six months ago, we know this is a big challenge for her and as a school we would like to show our support and help her to reach her fundraising target.
On Friday 21st April all of the children in school will complete a collective marathon by running/jogging/walking the 26.2 miles around the school field. The miles will be shared between each class and will be completed as a relay tag team.
We are asking for a minimum donation of £1 each for participation and in return the children will receive a cake (any cake donations would be gratefully received on Thursday or Friday morning). School PE kits will be worn for this event, your child may bring in a pair of trainers on Friday if they wish.
