CHILDREN from across the borough and beyond put their best foot forward to raise funds for Sport Relief.

Pupils at Vaynor First School Academy pounded the pavement for the charity which helps young people living on the streets in the UK, as well as funding education, fresh water and life-saving vaccines across the world.

Wearing red, they completed a mile alongside parents and carers, and bought Sport Relief wrist bands to raise more than £1,400.

Students, staff and parents from St Mary’s Church of England Junior School in Studley ran, walked, jogged and used other various modes of transport to clock up more than 640 miles throughout their school day.

Children and staff also swapped their afternoon breaks for ten minute treks to achieve running a mile in 10 minutes on the day.

They hope to beat the whopping £2,464.29 raised for the charity two years ago.

Energetic members of the 1st Ipsley Rainbows also ran, hopped and skipped to help raise £20 for the cause.
