Perse Pelican children go on the run for charity

Children quickly hit their stride to raise funds for good causes in the Perse Pelican Charity Marathon.

Following a warm-up in the school hall, pupils completed laps of the Pelican grounds and collected stickers for each circuit they finished.

Between them, the Pelicans managed a lung-busting 2,090 laps, which equated to 280 miles (almost 11 marathons).

Nursery children completed 152 laps (more than three-quarters of a marathon) and Reception 430 laps (more than two marathons), while Years 1 and 2 finished 649 (over three marathons) and 859 circuits (four-and-a-half marathons) respectively.  

A welcome ice lolly was on hand to cool everyone down after their marathon mission, which raised funds for the children’s chosen charities Guide Dogs and Cambridge City Food Bank.
