On Friday 21st March 2014, Great Easton pupils arrived at school dressed in their sports clothes and armed with freshly baked cakes; ready to take on running a mile and enjoying a cake sale.

Children belonging to sports clubs wore their club kit, so we had rugby players, gymnasts, netball players, swimmers, dancers and footballers running all over the school. At playtime we had a cake sale with all proceeds going to Sport Relief, and after play we ran our mile. Lots of children got sponsorship for their running and after a quick count up, with extra sponsorship money still to come in, we had raised nearly £900 (£150 for non-uniform, £100 for the cake sale and £670 sponsorship). An amazing effort for 148 children! A special well done to four amazing pupils who raised an extra £250 in sponsorship for swimming the Sport Relief mile too.

Well done to everyone who took part and a big thank you to parents for baking so many yummy cakes. Our money will make a real difference to the children and families in UK and Africa.
