Around 130 pupils, aged from 2 to 12 took part in the event to raise money in aid of Cancer Research UK

The schools have been overwhelmed by the generous donations from families and their local communities and have so far raised over £2,600.

The money raised by the schools will help scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, helping to save more lives.

Race for Life events take place across the UK this autumn, for more information visit
