Skip to the good bit... Fenland school raises £300 for British Heart Foundation with skipathon
11:25 27 February 2014
Pupils skipped their way to almost £400 for their school and the British Heart Foundation.
The children at Thomas Eaton Primary School, in Wimblington, took part in a sponsored skipathon last November and were sponsored by their family and friends.
The total money raised was then divided, with 20 per cent being retained by the school’s parents association and the remainder donated to the British Heart Foundation.
On Wednesday, Nigel Cole from the charity visited the school assembly to receive the cheque for £315.22.
Children also received certificates for taking part - and six-year-old was presented a skipping rope for raising £55.
