True colours shown by Perse students for charity
A group of Perse students went on a multi-coloured mission in Milton Keynes to raise funds for charity.
They took part in the Color Obstacle Rush at Willen Lake, battling their way around a five-kilometre course featuring inflatable obstacles while being sprayed with brightly-coloured powders along the way.
The colourful crew, featuring eight Year 10 pupils, four Lower Sixth students and two Year 7 pupils, helped raise more than £200 for The Orphan Trust, a charity which works directly with grassroots projects to support orphaned and vulnerable children in Bangladesh.
Perse Charities Co-ordinator Emma Kenzie said: “The weather was good and everyone was very enthusiastic about taking part.
“There was a big warm-up at the start and a colour festival afterwards with music and dancing, so it was a really nice day and helped to support an amazing cause.”
