Pupils challenge themselves to raise £300 for good causes in Grantham




Youngsters at a village school raised more than £300 for charity as part of their Sports Day.

Pupils at Denton Primary School were taking part in a set of sports challenges in aid of the 'Grantham Rotary 55 challenge' last month.

Alongside the annual RotarySwimarathon which took place in June, The Rotary Club of Grantham also hosted an alternative event #SWIM55 for those unable to swim whereby groups could hold their own event using the “55” as the idea – 55 is the number of minutes you would normally swim.

Karen Ambrose, head of school, said: "Each class bubble competed separately across the course of the day in a selection of races including egg and spoon, potato race and relay.

"In addition, children completed a set of challenges for the Rotary. Parents generously donated to this and so far, have raised over £300.

Mrs Lee, PE and sports coordinator, organised the event.
