Year 3 and 4 classes at St Thomas More help put together a special charity day for the rest of the school to take part in last Friday (March 14).

It was held a week earlier than the nationwide event because the school is due to take part in a swimming gala on that date.

Lots of parents joined in the fun, running their own mile to start the day and then staying on to cheer their children on and watch them take part in lots of activities and challenges.

Every single child, in the Nursery to Year 6, not only completed their mile but did so with a smile on their face.

All the junior children then took part in a special Challenge mile, designed to make them think about the hardships that some children around the world suffer.

So far more than £1,000 has been raised from the day.
