Race for Life 2017
On a scorching hot Thursday afternoon the whole of Lockerley School and the community descended onto Butts Green to take part in our very own first Race for Life.
The children had been busy collecting sponsors and writing their own 'I Race for Life for...' back signs to show support for the Cancer Research Charity.
The event started with a warm up led by members of the SSOC, not that a warm up was really required on such a hot day!!! Soon after the race began with the children, members of staff, parents and supporters choosing either the long course round the entire green or the short course round the top of the green. The children were cheered on as they went by with cool drinks from the supporters waiting in the shade.
After half an hour the bell rang and the children made their way to the finish line to collect their medals. We don't have a final final total yet but so far we have raised an absolutely astonishing £1400!! WOW! Amazing work Lockerley School.
