Up for the challenge

CHILDREN at Stoke Row Primary School took part in a Tough Mudder-style obstacle course and raised

CHILDREN at Stoke Row Primary School took part in a Tough Mudder-style obstacle course and raised more than £1,100. Teachers, parents and family members watched as more than 62 pupils completed the course in just under two hours. The children, who were sponsored to take part, had to run along woodland trails, clamber over hay bales, jump into buckets of water and crawl under muddy nets. Pupil Peter John Cookson said: “I didn’t mind putting my feet in cold water as it was for a good cause”.  Chloe Cormack said: “It was extremely challenging but once I had completed the course, I wanted to do it all over again.” Clemmie Thorpe said: “The fun part was jumping off hay bales while covered in mud.” Gillian Fraser, a year six teacher, said: “It was great to see so many pupils coming together and having fun while raising money for such a good cause, especially as it was such a muddy course.” The event was organised by headteacher Charlotte Harris, running coach Chris Lee and former pupil Nicola Lee.
