A mile challenge saw 1,100 students from Cromwell Community College take part in a walk in support of Sport Relief 2018.

Inspired by challenges by celebrities, students walked, ran and jogged covering a distance of a mile to raise £1,000.

In addition 6th form students organised a football game against staff, and sold specially made sports relief cakes.

Mr Suckling, head of PE, and Mrs Allen, charity coordinator, said: “It’s so exciting to be involved in this year’s Sport Relief campaign and a fantastic opportunity for the children and staff to get active and raise money for such a brilliant cause.

“It’s always a fun way of bringing the whole school together to help make a difference and change lives.”
