Great Dunham Primary School raises more than £300 for The Norfolk Hospice after Rudolph Run

A primary school has raised hundreds for charity after taking part in a sponsored run.

Children at Great Dunham Primary School raised £393.98 when the whole school, including staff, took part in a sponsored Rudolph Run on the last day of term in December.

All the proceeds will now go towards The Norfolk Hospice, which helps to support and care for people during their last weeks of life as well as supporting their family and friends.

This is the second year the small village primary school has taken part, and the children were keen to get running and the donations kept coming in.

Mr Wingate, a class teacher and organiser of the run, said: "It was so lovely to see everyone come together and have an enjoyable time in the bitter cold to raise money for a fantastic cause.

“Seeing the children run, walk, and skip together was a heart-warming sight.”

A pupil at the school said: "I had loads of fun.

“I ran out of breath quite early on but when we finished I felt really happy and everyone else was smiley too.

“I was very proud of myself and all my friends in school too.”
