Pupils of St Sebastian’s Primary School in Great Gonerby have raised more than £600 for Cancer Research UK by taking part in a Race for Life event.

The children took part in the event around the school grounds. Parents and carers were also invited to take part.

Headteacher Linda Baldwin said: “There are many of our school community – both staff and families – who have first-hand experience of cancer and we felt this was a relatively simple but effective way of supporting such a worthwhile charity.

“Our youngsters are the generation that could see ground-breaking treatments and cures for cancer in their lifetime. They are the young warriors who could be the researchers and lifesavers of tomorrow. By taking part in Race for Life and uniting together against cancer, they will be doing something really special.”
