Over 100 fundraisers pulled on their trainers and took their toddlers and even their dogs to complete the Sport Relief Mile at Lynnsport’s
running track on Sunday morning.
Around 120 dedicated runners of all ages took part, with families and regular runners taking up the track alongside each other to run either the one-, three- or six-mile distance.
Organiser Victoria King said: “It was a good event and went very well. We had a big warm up with everyone before and even though it was cold and had been raining, everyone completed at least one mile.
“A few of them managed the three- and six-mile courses as well.”
The event is held at Lynnsport every other year and this is the third time it has been held in Lynn. Organisers are waiting for sponsorship to be collected but are hoping to beat the £1,500 raised at the last event.
At Terrington St Clement Primary School, youngsters from class 5/6 JK were among those who tested out their baking skills when they held their own Sport Relief Bake Off last Friday.
Pupils attempted to make all different types of bread to raise money to support poverty-stricken families in the UK and abroad.
Each class made an individual bread and these were judged by a panel of experts from the nearby bakery, the school kitchens and the cookery club. They chose the best overall bread and then the best bake in each year group.
At the end of the school day, the children sold their breads to parents to raise money.
Jasmine Harper, Maxine Bearman, Brookes Gee, Jake Chrier, Daniel Coe, Owen Briggs, Chad Brown and Alex Tokaji were among the students cooking up a storm.
