Pupils, teachers and parents at Stevenage’s Roebuck Primary School and Nursery ran their socks off in a special Race for Life event to raise cash for Cancer Research UK.
Pupils raced around the school running track on Friday to drum up the cash from sponsorship and they have raised a huge £3,500.
Parent Kate Sayer, said: “The children, teachers and parents who took part did really well and the school is extremely proud of all the effort put in to such an amazing event.
“Children were walking, running and skipping and one was even on crutches around the whole track.
“Cancer has touched so many people’s lives and the teamwork and togetherness felt last Friday at our school was overwhelming.
