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.
