Schoolchildren walked miles and miles to raise money while delivering happiness.

Youngsters from Gosberton Academy spent their last day before half- term walking a whopping 1600km around the village as part of their sponsored walk.

The walk, which was planned by the Academy’s Parent Teacher and Friends Association as a way of raising funds for the school, equated to each child taking in more than 10km.

The school teamed up with Gosberton House Care Home and during the laps of the village the children delivered letters and poems to the residents of the care home.

Headteacher Tom Baxter said: “It is a great way of raising money but more importantly, it is a way of getting children active, encouraging them to walk around their community and supporting the local care home too.

“A special mention should go to Leo Codsi who was able to source bottles of water for every child and Hazel Alles who worked with Del Monte to ensure each child received a fruit bag during the day.”

The money raised will go towards ensuring the school has all the necessary stationery, resources and equipment for the new academic year.

Mr Baxter added: “The whole school community have been overwhelmed by the support shown to our sponsored walk.”
