Sport Relief events were taking place across South Holland on Friday.
Surfleet Primary School and Holbeach Primary Academy both joined in on the fun.
All members of staff and pupils from Surfleet took part in the day’s events, which started with everyone paying £1 to come in a sports kit of their choice.
Everyone then joined in a Sport Relief mile where they could walk, run, skip, backwards walk – as long as they completed a mile.
The children then got a chance to join in on a free karate workshop. School teacher, Laura Martin, said this was “a great success. The kids really enjoyed it”. Adrenaline Martial Arts also gave the school five prizes to raffle off for four weeks’ free karate lessons and a free uniform.
The school do not know how much they have raised but have already exceeded £100 through the raffle and sports kit, without counting sponsor money from the mile.
Holbeach Primary Academy also involved the whole school. Pupils ran one mile around the school field.
Alison Larking said they chose this to “promote sport in schools” and also said the “kids loved it”.
The total amount raised by the school is not yet known.
