WEEKEND WEB: Two events raise cash for sports pavilion in 2000

We look back at the Spalding Guardian this week in 2000...

Cakes were putting a smile on the face of Pinchbeck East Primary School’s pupils - and putting money into their millennium fund at the same time. Each Thursday morning, a class took its turn to hold a cake sale with delicious home-baked cakes supplied by parents. The money raised wernt towards building a sports pavilion.

Marathon man Andy Pack was hoping he could beat his London Marathon personal best to raise money for Pinchbeck East Primary’s millennium project.

The 34-year-old, whose son Josh (6) went to the school, was hoping to break the three-hour barrier in his fifth marathon.

Mr Pack, of Medlock Crescent, Spalding, was doing around 60 miles a week in marathon training.
