Using skipping ropes provided by the British Heart Foundation, children at Park Lane Primary and Nursery School in Whittlesey skipped for up to a mile, depending on age, as part of a relay challenge.

Their efforts raised more than £300, which will be split between the two charities.

Lorraine Quince, communications & IT support co-ordinator at Park Lane said: “We were delighted to see so many of our pupils dressed in red to support these two charities.

“The children skipped with such enthusiasm and showed great comradeship throughout the day.”
