Perse pupils shine in colourful fundraising run
2 Jun 2021
Eighteen Perse pupils showed their true colours by taking part in a special sponsored charity run in Milton Keynes.
The Color Obstacle Rush at Willen Lake saw them have fun taking on a five-kilometre inflatable obstacle course while being sprayed with brightly-hued powders along the way.
Thanks to their efforts, the 14 Year 10 pupils taking part have raised almost £800 for Pencils of Promise, a not-for-profit organisation building schools and increasing educational opportunities for children in developing countries such as Ghana, Guatemala, Laos and Nicaragua.
Meanwhile, a group of four Year 11 youngsters were raising money for Womankind Worldwide, which aims to secure equal rights for women and girls across the globe.
