Race for Life, a big fundraiser for Cancer Research, has been opened up to schools – and Sutton St James Primary lost no time in racing to the starting line.
Around 90 pupils completed at least ten circuits of the school field, a distance of one-and-a-half miles, and so far a staggering £700 has been raised.
Headteacher Claire Willows said pupils ran or walked the distance.
“It was a lovely atmosphere,” she said. “Everybody was encouraging each other and helping each other and some were holding hands as they walked round. I am very proud of the children and really pleased how supportive the parents were.”
