Perse staff go the extra mile for charity disguised as Where’s Wally?
31 Mar 2021
Members of Perse staff put their best foot forward dressed as Where’s Wally? to raise funds for the National Literacy Trust (NLT).
Acting Head of Design & Technology Anna Wingfield, biology teacher Nicole Copeland, art & design teacher Julie Griffiths, librarian Laura Alboni and nurse Maria Brightwell donned the fictional hide-and-seek expert’s familiar striped shirt, glasses and bobble hat to help the cause.
They have raised £835 so far for the NLT by taking part in the charity’s first virtual Where’s Wally? Weekender, an event in which more than 1,300 people across the country did sponsored runs of between 1km to 10km in their local areas masquerading as the famous children’s book character.
Mrs Wingfield said: “Usually it’s a big event that people attend, but for obvious reasons this year, it was run remotely and the National Literacy Trust sent out the costumes to everyone that signed up.
“A lot of people run for charity and it appealed to us that this was a bit different and would bring a smile to people’s faces. We were all elated to raise so much, but tired after slogging through some mud!”
