St Oswald’s CE Primary School held a fun run in Mollington in aid of a worthy cause. charity which raises money
Last Friday’s event (June 24) was organised by the school sports ambassadors Mia Tong, Bethan Thomson and Holly Gifford and raised money for the Reverse Rett charity.
Mia, Bethan and Holly were inspired to organise the run as one of their classmates, Michael Fowler, has already done lots of fundraising for the charity. This is because his younger sister Ciara has Rett Syndrome, a rare condition that affects the development of the brain.
Chester MP Chris Matheson offered his support to the team when he paid a visit to the school earlier in the day to answer questions on the EU Referendum result.
All members of Year 5 and Year 6 took part in the fun run, completing a 5km course around Mollington, at times in the pouring rain and eventually raising £110 for Reverse Rett.
Headteacher Dave Wallace said: “This was a fantastic event and shows just what a great community we have here and just how strong our school values are.
“The organisation our sports ambassadors did was superb and I would also like to thank the large number of parent volunteers who took part on the day in order to ensure everyone stayed safe.”
