Arden Grove Infant School’s sporty youngsters heartily welcomed Team Honk, a bloggers’ team carrying a Sport Relief wand from Land’s End to John O’Groats, and after that clocked up 5 miles to serve the team for its aim of raising £ 20000.
After that the wand was taken to Fitness Express at the Hethersett – the place where the members of the Norwich Team Honk covered a further sixty miles on bikes and treadmills so that the wand could resume its journey from the Cambridge.
This running event was parent Clare Anderson’s idea, who linked with Team Honk on social networking sites as well as asked Hellesdon School if they wanted bring their Sport Relief fund raising program forward.
Clare Anderson told that it would have been such a shame for the school to miss out. Some of the children have already stated that they would never go to forget this. They have been having collections in each classroom to raise money. They all have the recollection of Olympic Torch coming past the school. More than that, they all very excited at the idea.
Daniel Thrower, the head teacher, stated that the school staff and kids had a great time. It was a magnificent scope brought to them by Jacob’s mother and they were delighted to help. Schools and youth manager at the Comic Relief asked schools to participate again this year. She told that schools and nurseries are some of the best fundraisers for Sport Relief and they are hugely grateful for their continued dedication and hard work.
