Cancer touches all of our lives in one way or another, and that has certainly been true of those within the community at St Paul’s Primary School in Spalding this year.

With that in mind, Cancer Research is something that the school and the children wanted to make a contribution to.

And what better way to come together and motivate each other than through their own Race for Life?

They held the event on the school field with the challenge to participants of seeing how many circuits of the field they could complete in the time given.

Parents, toddlers, pupils, staff and governors of the school ran, walked and skipped throughout the afternoon and were all rewarded for their efforts with an official medal.

Head teacher Kira Nicholls said: “The pupils were so proud of themselves. Many of them raised a considerable amount.

“We are awaiting the final total of sponsorships to be collected but I wish to thank everyone who took part in the event and for making it the successful and thoroughly enjoyable afternoon that it was.”
