Pupils at Camps Hill Primary School in Stevenage have raised £1,700 after taking part in their third annual colour run event.

The schoolchildren, staff and parents took part in a fun run while getting covered from head to toe in coloured powder from different stations placed around the school grounds.

The money raised will be split between the school – for new equipment – and Garden House Hospice Care in Letchworth.

Year 6 pupil Raynor said: “The colour run is a fun, exciting way to exercise while we raise money for various charities.”

Headteacher Emma Flawn said: “Our annual colour run gives our community an opportunity to come together and have fun whilst, at the same time, raising money for a charity close to our community’s heart.

“The Garden House Hospice does an amazing job in very difficult circumstances and we are proud to be fundraising for them as our charity for 2018.”
