Reception teachers complete ‘Race for Life’

Reception teachers, Miss Jenny Tew and Miss Polly Murdock completed the 10k ‘Race for Life’ at Burghley House in Stamford this weekend in aide of Cancer Research.

Miss Tew completed the race in 1 hour 11 minutes and Miss Murdock completed it in 56 minutes. She said, ‘I have been training three times a week since Easter and am also competing in the Great North Run in September so this was good practice for that. It was a lovely day and so nice to see all ages take part from little children to older people they all joined in and completed the race. It was a fantastic atmosphere.’

Office Administrator Pam Hare also took part with her family. She said ‘I walked the course with my two daughters who are 12 and 13. We do the race every year in memory of my sister who sadly passed away in 2015 from cancer. This year was particularly special for us as it would have been her 50th birthday. I think it is a fantastic way of raising awareness and will continue to take part every year.’
