Park Lane, Whittlesey, school pupils run their hearts out for Sport Relief
PUPILS from Park Lane Primary School, Whittlesey, took part in a Sport Relief run on Friday.
The children decided to raise money for children who may not have the same sporting opportunities.
MP Steve Barclay attended the event to hand out medals and certificates to the winning pupils.
Throughout the school, children were dressed in colours that represented 14 countries from around the world and the afternoon began with an opening ceremony.
The students paraded around their school field proudly holding the 14 flags.

He said: “The children dressed in their countries’ colours at the opening ceremony was amazing to watch and created a really positive atmosphere.
“Sport Relief was particularly poignant this year with the Olympics and our Park Lane event further enthused the children about fitness and their health.”
Park Lane pupils followed the inspiration of the 290-mile challenge recently undertaken by comedian John Bishop.
Mr Ingham added: “They are extremely hopeful that the money raised will go towards helping other children who are less fortunate than themselves.”
